More about Peer Connect:
CILT Peer Connect is a virtual peer support opportunity for adults with disabilities that operates within the Independent Living Philosophy. This means participants are responsible for themselves, their actions, and how they communicate. In every session we will check in and connect around a particular topic and have a chance to share how we are coping with stress and isolation as a result of COVID-19. Please be ready to participate in activity and discussion and let us know if we can support with any accommodations. There is an option to join these sessions by phone.
