At: The Boys and Girls Club , 230 West Sixth Street South Boston, MA 02127
We are trying to gauge interest in having Joanne Peterson, founder of Learn 2 Copestart a meeting here in South Boston.
We are asking anybody who is interested in becoming a Learn2Cope facilitator to attend the next Hope & Recovery Coalition meeting on February 20th 5pm at the South Boston Health Center – the coalition is serving only as a connector to Joanne. Once Joanne has trained community members on the format of the meeting she turns them over to the community facilitators. It should be made clear that the Learn 2 Cope has no affiliation withthe Hope & Recovery Coalition it is a standalone 501 C 3 organization.
