YWCA St. Paul, in partnership with YMCA of the North, invites members of the Black community living, working and/or fellowshipping in the Midway area of St. Paul to join our Healing Circles, a supportive, facilitated space to affirm your culture, community and lived experience, and to share dialogue and feelings to promote health and well-being.

Healing Circles will utilize a circle and restorative approach to healing to help alleviate the negative impacts of racism, alienation and isolation. We are committed to creating a safe, confidential and welcoming community with you.
This program is intended to advance Black intergenerational (from tweens to elders) relationships and community building for families and communities.
