In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have transitioned all of our spring in-person classes to an online or hybrid format. Hybrid classes are fully online with live virtual class meetings each week using Zoom. Online classes will have pre-recorded lessons each week and guided assignments from the teacher. There's still time to register, click here: bit.ly/virtual-hse.

If you need help connecting to social services such as childcare referrals, housing assistance, learn how to connect with employment opportunities, navigate college and training programs, and more, we can assist you! We're offering free one-on-one virtual social services sessions (case management).
