Monthly Client Update

January 2021


January 21, 2021



Each month, our team will publish monthly updates here on to highlight upcoming services and things of note for Damien Center clients.

Upcoming Opportunities and Services

Building a Future will be coming back to Damien Center with a target date of mid-April. Classes will be offered virtually and in person (depending on current state regulations). Building a Future will have classes that explore financial literacy, emotional and mental health, and lifestyle. These classes will be offered to all those who utilize Damien services. Building a Future is a space where clients can get together and discuss how to practically maneuver around everyday issues that come up. Classes will be posted on the Damien Center website for clients to access if a client is unable to attend a session that would be beneficial. If you are interested in learning more about Building a Future, please reach out to Annie Nelson at [email protected].

The Client Advisory Board will start meeting regularly on the last fourth Thursday of every month at 3:00 PM. For the time being, Client Advisory Board will be meeting virtually on Zoom. The board meetings are open to clients of the Damien Center (a client is any person who is accessing or has ever accessed a direct service of the Damien Center). The meetings will be a place to discuss current policies and services in place at Damien Center as well as bring up concerns or ideas to help create a safe space for all Damien clients. Participants in the CAB will receive a gift card! If you are interested in being a part of the Client Advisory Board, please reach out to Annie ([email protected]) or Marco ([email protected]).
