  • Community Events

    Your community is a vital network that supports both you and your family! While that is a beautiful thing, they can also be complex and layered. Sometimes it's hard to know where to start when building our own... 

    Here are some resources and events that have been gathered by families and friends to help you. Please join the process by emailing msmith@lexnyc.org with any new finds, and continue to grow and strengthen your own support by participating in multiple layers (at school, in your local neighborhood, and through your state/national organizations).
