Our In-Unit Support 


Facilitated Support Groups 

Love for Lily provides facilitated support groups for parents.  We alternate weekly between Moms Group and Family Group.  We teach coping skills and help families build community within their unit.  Many of our program tenants are based on the teaching of the Hendricks Institute.  Love for Lily facilitators are certified life coaches and focus on 3 main teachings: building allies, emotional literacy and breathing.
