To get started, Talia invited some friends of ALL ages to be part of her circle: previous support workers, family friends, girls she knew from the Y, etc. Now, every few months, Talia invites her circle to attend a meeting at our home. At a circle meeting, with help from her Facilitator and from us, Tal shares her life updates, celebrations and concerns. Then the circle helps her (and us) to brainstorm solutions. For example, Talia is aging out of some programs she loves —
especially cooking and music. So the group is helping her find or develop alternatives in the community.
