Separation Support Meetings



Like everyone else, we are finding new ways to connect. Until further notice, all NB meetings will be online. Our monthly Dinner & Movie Nights will resume when it is safe to gather.

An online meeting will never be the same as an in-person one. We don’t pretend that it is. But it is better than nothing, and we are exceedingly grateful to have this option to keep our services alive when so many other organizations must cancel, postpone or close entirely.

There are, in fact, several advantages to online discussions:

  • You only have to look presentable from the neck up.

  • You don’t have to drive anywhere. The gas and travel time you save can be spent shopping online or bingeing on Netflix.

  • You can attend any of them, regardless of where you live.

  • We can offer more of them because we don’t need physical locations.

  • We can have a meeting with as few as 2 participants, so they are less likely to be canceled.

  • Online meetings are FREE for both members & non-members (for now at least).

    Thank you for your flexibility and willingness to embrace change. We understand that this is
    hard. NB members have always been courageous, resilient and quick to show compassion toward others. This is a chance to do that in a different way. We can do this—together.
