A Busy September for CCCHS!
Dear CCCHS Members,
We are looking forward to our first meeting back on September 7th in person at Calvary Church. As usual, we will meet for resource sharing and networking at noon, but we will offer a FREE 1 ½ hour Self-Care Training prior to our September Monthly Membership Meeting.
Denise McCann from CenClear will provide a presentation on How to Manage Vicarious Trauma and Execute Self-Care as Professionals in the Human Service Fields. This training will begin at 10:00 AM and boxed lunches will be provided to registered attendees so you can stay at Calvary Church for our Membership Meeting at noon. The training will help us learn about the prevalence of trauma and recognizing the signs and symptoms of vicarious trauma, and self-care strategies to help us along the way.
September is also busy for Council since our Bob Ott Seed Grant applications are due at the end of the month. If your organization has a project or unmet need, consider submitting your application. Grant(s) of up to $5,000 could be awarded.
Last but not least, we will partner with ACAP of Centre County (Adult Children of Aging Parents) for our September 30th training where we will focus on building our own toolkits and learning how to turn negatives into positives – both at work and home. We are especially excited to welcome back fan-favorite Chuck Mazzitti as our speaker for this session.
We hope you and your agency’s colleagues can attend both of our trainings! Visit our website for training registration and Seed Grant application.
