Can We Talk

‘Can we Talk?’ is a free workshop for social services professionals designed to bring agencies together to connect and share resources to strengthen community services. 

At the last workshop (May 30, 2018), attendees discussed collaboration among agencies, sharing resources to create a stronger network, and the importance of self-care with a guided meditation by Sahaja Yoga Meditation.

This is a quarterly event hosted by the City of Dallas Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center.
