As parents, educators, service providers, and leaders we are tasked with helping our young people make sense of all that has transpired over this past year while also overcoming a myriad of obstacles along the way. We have all experienced some level of stress as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and unless we address it, our mental health will be the next community crisis which prevents us from moving forward. Join us for the 2021 Lora M. Robins Speaker Series as we discuss how to best address the mental health impacts of COVID-19 to ensure we are providing quality care for our children and for ourselves.

Convening Leaders Rethinking How We House


It is no secret that there is a major deficit in affordable housing across the Richmond region. As we tackle the need for affordable housing, we must also continue to ensure that current residents are able to stay in their homes; homes that are safe and sound. Join us in a virtual discussion with Marion Cake (LMR '20), Vice President of Affordable Housing Development for project:HOMES as we discuss the innovative solutions appearing around the Richmond region from creative new builds to owner-occupied home repair. Learn about a local home made out of shipping containers and the forthcoming revitalization of Bermuda Estate Mobile Home Park. We hope you will join us to both learn and bring ideas to the table regarding how we can think differently about housing solutions in our region.
