Monthly Caregiver Workshops

Cocktails and Bureaucracy and Coffee & Conversation are Extreme Kids & Crew's ongoing series of workshops / support groups in which panelists and caregivers share advocacy resources and information. The workshops will have the same topics but held on separate days. Cocktails & Bureaucracy is an informal evening gathering at Freddy's Bar on week nights, and Coffee & Conversation is hosted at P.S. 71 on select weekends.
