Message from Mayor Kleem

Can We Talk? Sometimes that’s all that’s needed to make us feel better – about ourselves and others.

And that’s the name of new group that meets weekly at Smith School with Chaplain Willie Springer. It offers a chance for anyone to stop by and unload concerns. Issues might include job loss, empty nest syndrome, loss of a loved one or pet, concerns about children or grandchildren.

Sometimes we are faced with problems we don’t know how to resolve. What can I do? What do I do next? Where can I go? The goal of Can We Talk? is to guide you to finding answers, to let you know you are not alone.

Can We Talk? isn’t a therapy session but it is an opportunity to speak with others who may have similar concerns and with Chaplain Willie and a social worker who are trained to listen. They just might have some suggestions on where to access resources or more information.

One visit may be all it takes to put you on the right path.

Can We Talk? meets at 2 p.m. on Tuesdays. No reservations needed. The next session is Jan. 9.

This is just one of several programs the City is offering at Smith School. The school gives the City the opportunity to schedule programs and projects that need a flexible and/or private space.
