Each meeting we will openly discuss a current issue in the world. Occasionally, there may be a speaker or educational component to the support group.

The goal of the Support Group is to bring the SFSTF senior clients together, to have a safe place for them to share and discuss what is going on in their life. Ideally, the conversations among the clients will spur some ideas for other groups to be created.
