Mahoney Family Fund Announces Fall Webinar
Thursday, October 14, 12:00PM-1:00PM

The Power of Empathy: Reduce Stress and Build Better Adult/Child Relationships
Stress is alarmingly pervasive in daily life. Empathy is a tool to deal with tension in healthy and
productive ways.

Keynote Speaker Koa Goode, 20 year social worker, currently Case Manager Supervisor at
Greater Lawrence Community Action Council (GLCAC) will explore the lasting benefits of
exercising compassion in our interactions with others. This is especially important with family
members and our children who have a wide range of feelings and stressors, just like adults.
Understanding the developmental milestones from infant to teen years helps us as parents,
teachers and caregivers to create nurturing relationships with children.

The mission of the Mahoney Family Fund is to mitigate abuse and violence within families and
against children.  The seminar is presented by the Mahoney Family Fund in partnership with the
its fiscal sponsor GLCAC and Lowell City of Learning.

The Mahoney Family Fund raises both awareness and money for frontline organizations
dealing with youth in crisis from trauma and violence.
