FCC to Host First Family Support Group
Have you ever felt overwhelmed when trying to raise your children? Have you ever wished that you could share your challenges and successes, your frustrations and celebrations with another group of adults who are also struggling, succeeding, failing and moving through the difficult stages of raising children with special needs? Have you ever felt like other parents are judging your parenting skills? Then you need to join us! Friendship Circle Cincinnati is beginning a Parents' Support Group on Monday, Feb. 20. All parents of children of all abilities are invited to join in a private conversation with each other to offer judgement-free support to each other. If you cannot make this first evening, do not fear, this will now be a regular monthly offering by the Friendship Circle to support the adults within our circle. Please RSVP as light Kosher refreshments are offered at our meetings, and we want to have plenty for all. Until we meet, please enjoy this article the top 10 reasons you should join a support group.

Scene 75 Event a Success!
Some of our teens were able to meet yesterday to get to know one another and have some fun together at Scene 75. The local chaverim, Mika and Shachar, were able to join us as well, making this a truly special day for all. It was a fantastic way to begin our group programming for Friendship Circle Cincinnati and we can't wait until the Teen Scene scheduled for late February to get together again for fun, learning and socialization together! You can see some of the great times we had on our Facebook page linked below.
