In response to the COVID-19 virus pandemic, we are now offering weekly online support groups for anyone who lives in Washington State. We use the Zoom Cloud Meetings app which is available free to participants for both phones and web browsers. These groups are held every Thursday at 7:30 PM.
First, get the app:
The computer app can be downloaded here https://zoom.us/support/download
Android and Apple phone users can install the app from their phone's app store.
Then, with plenty of time before the meeting, we recommend:
Testing to make sure your video and audio work and are ready to go. (It's in the setup.)
Choosing the name at sign up that you prefer to me known by in the group.
When you're ready to join a meeting:
Use this link https://zoom.us/j/4255821042 from a browser, regardless of which app you're using.
You'll need to know our meeting number. It is 425 5821 042.
Each of our support groups is unique as each embodies the character of the surrounding community.
We strive to meet in locations that are safe and provide a reasonable expectation of privacy and anonymity.
All locations have free parking.
