Life Skills Series – April & May 2014

Life Skills SeriesThe Life Skills Series is being developed under the Permanent Supportive Housing Program in conjunction with Client Services at the NO/AIDS Task Force. PSH clients struggle with multiple challenges, ranging from mental and physical illness, substance abuse, and minimal education and job opportunities. The PSH Case Managers and Peer Support Specialists recognized a need among their clients, many of whom have experienced chronic homelessness, for basic life skills training and peer support.

Workshops are held weekly on Wednesday mornings at the NO/AIDS office in Mid-City. Topics include money management, health and wellness, effective communication skills, workplace etiquette, and more! . All NO/AIDS clients are welcome.

Classes are free and open to the public!  For more information contact Cynthia Mitchell at or 821-2601 x 538
