Our next Community Education programing will be held on Tuesday, July 27, 2021 at 7pm via Zoom. This organization is only three years old, but they are working it! Check them out at Robinshope.com.

Time to meet our July Community Education Speaker:

Robin’s Hope is a program of Jeremiah Foundation, Inc and separate of Inner Touch. It is a peer-run program that works to bring a mix of clinical “learned’ experience, peer support “lived” experience coupled with interns, members/participants of the program, other people from the community, and collaborating organizations. 

On June 4, 2018, we opened the doors to our very first RISE group, a resilience-based trauma support group, and a trauma sensitive yoga class in collaboration with Leah Lingus (2 groups weekly).  October 1, 2018, we opened from 1-8pm on Mondays with a trauma sensitive yoga group on Wednesday mornings and some evening trauma sensitive yoga groups (6-7 groups weekly). 

On January 8, 2020 we expanded to add a second RISE group due to an increase in group attendance (7 groups weekly).  On February 5, 2020, we added a full day of groups on Wednesdays open from 9am-8pm (12 groups weekly).  February/March 2020, Americans were struck by a global pandemic (COVID-19) and the world slowed down.  We didn’t stop our groups though.  March 18, 2020 (Wednesday) was our last full day in-person and we were running groups virtually from March 23, 2020 (Monday) onward.  The members requested extra check in days throughout the week and several people stepped up to make that happen.  On April 1, 2020 we had some type of group/s 5 days a week (15 groups weekly).  As of October 1, 2020, we operate roughly averaging 18-20 groups a week operating 6 days a week.
