We would like to express our gratitude to our community leaders and partners for finding new and creative ways to collaborate and serve throughout this year. Since March, we’ve seen agencies work together to find shared solutions to meet the changing needs of our community.  This is the time of the year that many families and friends look forward to socializing and being together. Due to existing health concerns and the rise in Coronavirus cases, many families across the country are being creative with planning holiday gatherings.

We understand this is also a time of the year can bring an onset of increased anxiety, stress, or other forms of mental health. Family Counseling of Columbus, a program of The Family Center, has shared some tips for managing stress in this holiday season. Visit the website for more information on the services they offer and the tips for managing holiday stress or call 211 for additional mental health services.

Take some time to reflect and communicate with your loved ones, whether they live near or far. As the pandemic persists, we recommend you to continue following CDC guidelines while taking care of yourself and each other. Thank you for your partnership and your work in the community. We are United in this Together!
