This is a support group for adults with aging parents, either in or out of the family’s home. Caring for aging parents can be overwhelming, placing great demands on your time and emotions. It can negatively affect your marriage and/or other family relationships, and it can be difficult to navigate healthcare, housing, and other issues. Come and gain support and ideas from others who are addressing a similar situation, and from facilitators: Brandi DeFazio and Debra Peopping, both of whom have specific training and experience working with issues of aging and the impact on families.

Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.
So Young Life leaders log many hours with kids — where they are, as they are. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.
We believe in the power of presence. Kids’ lives are dramatically influenced when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.
This is the first step of a lifelong journey; the choices they make today, based upon God’s love for them, will have an impact on future decisions — careers chosen, marriages formed and families raised — all ripples from the time when a Young Life leader took time to reach out and enter their world.
