For Anyone Interested Services for Independent Living is offering a Youth Support Group via zoom on the 2nd and 3rd Friday of each month to support our youths ages 14-21. We have found that there is a lot of social isolation surrounding the pandemic with our youths and so we came up with Ready, Youth, Go or RYG to support our youths. If anyone has any youths they think may benefit from the group please feel free to contact me at 216-389-2352 or sjones@sil-oh.org
