Village Assist Community Circle

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our
Village Assist Community Circles!

ETV’s Village Community Circles are supportive and compassionate spaces designed to empower community members to achieve their goals for more joyful living and balanced lives as they overcome emotional and mental health challenges.

That is why we are assembling cohorts of up to 15 women, men and youth to form intimate and supportive groups, facilitated by Licensed Therapists who are skilled and empathetic wellness professionals.
