Coffee and Chat


Join our interactive support group and meet other families facing similar struggles. Families meet and typically discuss a topic related to caring for a child who is struggling. Many participants leave with new ideas and strategies, feel refreshed and know that they are not alone. The group is facilitated by a mental health professional.

Sessions are free and open to the public, but registration is requested (choose from dates/times below).

Translation is available with registration.

Free child care is available, but children must be registered separately. We are able to accommodate children with special concerns. If you have a question about how we can help your child feel comfortable, please contact us at info@connectingforkids.org.

    Join Connecting for Kids for a Family Fun Night on Friday, September 2 at the Lake Erie Crushers. Watch the Crushers take on the Washington Wild Things at 7:05 pm and then stay after the game for fireworks. 

    All Connecting for Kids families who attend can enter a drawing to win a prize pack featuring Crushers and Connecting for Kids items. See Sarah Rintamaki when you arrive on the lawn to sign up for the raffle.

    We want this to be a fun, stress-free night for families. No one will care if your kids run up and down the hill all night or whether your family leaves before the fireworks because your kids can't handle the noise. Please come and have fun with other families that share similar struggles.  

    Cost: $5/ticket for lawn seats on the left field berm hill
