  • Provide Helpline Support at our usual Helpline hours: Monday through Thursday, 9am – 2pm, when Matrix Parent Advisors are available
  • Send e-newsletters full of links to organizations, articles, webinars, trainings and updates regarding school-related closures/changes as set forth by CDE and school districts
  • Update our website and Facebook page regularly with valuable information and resources for our community
  • Offer training opportunities and distance learning discussion groups through the Zoom Meeting platform starting May 5th

Please check back for a schedule of our upcoming online trainings, support groups and parent discussions. Here’s to being compassionate and understanding in our dealings with others in our community during this time when coming together will really help us all from falling apart.
Thank you all and I hope all stay safe and healthy!
Steve Diamond, Executive Director
