Welcome Meetings are offered two times each week, on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 PM or on Thursdays at noon on a drop-in basis. That means you don't have to call us, or make an appointment. Just choose a day and time that is convenient for you and come in. Patients, family members, and close friends are all welcome. And of course, if the scheduled times are not convenient, please contact us and we'll do our best to accommodate your needs. Tuesday, September 16, 7PM, Thursday, September 18, noon.
Join us as we welcome back Lagniappe Project visiting artist, David Cunningham, for his monthly workshops in the expressive arts. In this month’s workshop, David will invite participants to explore a variety of expressions using colored pencils and Bristol paper to create elements of 3-D Pop-Outs into cards. No experience needed, but a curious spirit is helpful. David has worked with HopeWell for over two seasons of creative explorations. He is a visual artist with a wide interest in drawing, painting, and mixed media. Thursday, September 18, 1 to 2:30 PM.
This six-week program is for children (between the ages of 5 and 12) and teens (between 13 and 18) who have a parent, grandparent, close relative, or close family friend living with cancer. Children and teens follow a curriculum of activities, discussion, crafts, and other age appropriate activities to support family attachments, diminish false attributions and myths associated with cancer, bolster self-competency, and increase knowledge. Emphasis is also on coping with change, identifying feelings, developing new coping skills, and boosting self-esteem. Saturday, September 20, 10AM to 11:30 AM. Pre-registration required.
