Main Street residents have the option to sign up for Community Coaching with Daniel, Sam and Henrietta.

  • Community walks and meetings in the park to discuss life topics
  • Walks to local restaurants for outdoor dining, socialization and connection
  • Virtual discussions, games and connection if the group is unable to meet in person
