On December 12, three families enrolled in Safe Shores’ caregiver support group went ice skating to experience a new adventure in healing.
“It warmed my heart to see my daughter racing you two on the ice,” a teary-eyed mom said to Senior Family Advocate Sharde McConnell and MDT Coordinator Rachel Booker.

“Thank you so much,” a mom said. “I just need a couple more minutes, then I will put my cape back on.”
