On September 29, 24 people from 19 organizations participated in the most recent Charis quarterly meeting. At quarterly meetings, which are facilitated by Urban Alliance, counselors and care providers are given opportunities to build knowledge and receive resources about emotional support and mental health topics.

Charis is an Urban Alliance initiative that helps people become emotionally healthy and resilient by collaboratively increasing the impact of local care and counseling services.
