  • Val Warner "in da house"!
    Please join IPI and your fellow community leaders and family service providers as Val Warner engages us all on how to better serve the families in our community as they juggle parenting and life. And after she speaks, let the discussions begin!, as a panel of professionals in the field answers our questions, as well as leads us through a discussion on coming up with strategies that best serve our families. All while chowing down on a yummy breakfast… Looking forward to seeing you there!

    BTW, seating is limited, so please RSVP here. And click on the photo to the left for more info.

    But this time, with a twist: For our 2014-2015 workshop sessions, each Dialogue will address a specific theme and skill within the CC continuum. That way, you have the option to either attend all of the workshops or the workshop specific to your CC interest. Click on the pic to the left for more info.

    And did we tell you: They're FREE for family service providers affiliated with Geminus Community Partners. But space is limited, and the Dialogues do fill up quickly, so RSVP...
