Socializing and maintaining relationships with other people is a huge factor in being mentally, socially, and emotionally healthy. However, we understand that not everyone is born with the skills and interests to engage properly with people. That is why our program ensures that our beneficiaries learn the benefits and the ways to stay socially active.
