Peer Counseling is a Core Service that RCIL offers to people with disabilities.  RCIL helps them connect with other people who have, or have experienced, a disability by hosting an online RCIL Friends group once a month.  The group meets virtually via Zoom on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 2:00pm – 3:00pm.  They discuss disability related topics such as health and wellness, safety, transportation, housing, and direct support worker concerns.  Individuals can participate in the meeting using their computer, tablet, smartphone, or their phone.  Are you interested to join?  Contact RCIL at 785-528-3105 to sign up and to attend the next online RCIL Friends group meeting on February 23, 2021 at 2:00pm.  We will be discussing about the Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) and utility resources.
