Next Door’s Support Groups build resilience and self esteem while helping to minimize the damaging long-term effects that prevent people from living healthy, productive lives.  Support Groups recognize the strengths of each participant and cultivate in clients the means to recognize and develop their own personal strengths.  Next Door’s Support Groups are on-going and cover a variety of topics.  The curriculum we use runs weekly every week of the year.  Next Door’s Support Groups are run on a drop in basis.
