Congratulations to the 24 parents and caregivers who completed MCF’s Southern Maryland Family Leadership Retreat. During this two-day retreat, participants learned the importance of self-care, strategies to collaborate with schools and how to be a leader in their family and community. This retreat, the fifth of its kind hosted by MCF, also included workshops on bullying and suicide prevention and how to promote mental wellness through exercise.
MCF’s next Family Leadership Retreat will take place on the Upper Eastern Shore in November—details are coming soon
Funding for this program is provided by the Maryland State Department of Education
