Alzheimer's Support Group in Catalina - VISTA UMC

Alzheimer's Support Group Forming

Let us know if your are interested...

This valuable opportunity is for both the Alzheimer's patient and family members who want to learn more about what it is like to live with this condition which effects more and more people in our community each year. The group is divided into two teams; those with Alzheimer's and their family members. Each gathers in separate but neighboring classrooms to meet with facilitators to share and learn.

Due to space specifications, this workshop will be held at Vista de la Montana Methodist Church in Catalina, near Oracle and Golder Ranch Road.

Parenting Class Series Forming: Tips for Raising Autistic and Hearing Delayed Children

Tips for Raising Autistic and Hearing Delayed Children 

Parenting Class Series Forming

Let us know if you are interested

This amazing class is wonderful for teachers and parents alike. Tips on how to raise children with Autism and those who are hearing delayed will make home and school life much less stressful. Imagine how effective it would be if parents and teachers used the same techniques and systems at home as at school! We have sponsored this course before, and parents raved about the skills they developed and the resources they received. If you are interested in more information, click the blue button to the right to let us know. We may form a summer session so teachers and parents can learn together. Share this information with a friend or colleague you know who works with an Autistic child, or one with hearing issues.

ESL and Citizenship Classes

ESL Classes

IMPACT offers ESL classes in Catalina on Wednesdays; both morning and evening sessions. Registration for classes is in September. Classes begin the first week of October and run through mid-May. These free classes are open to anyone in our community who wants to learn, or improve their English speaking and writing skills. A registration form can be found on our IMPACT Applications website page.

IMPACT ofrece clases de ESL en Catalina los miércoles; ambas sesiones de mañana y tarde. La inscripción para las clases es en septiembre. Las clases comienzan la primera semana de octubre y duran hasta mediados de mayo. Estas clases gratuitas están abiertas a cualquier persona de nuestra comunidad que desee aprender o mejorar sus habilidades de habla y escritura en inglés. Se puede encontrar un formulario de registro en nuestra página web de aplicaciones IMPACT.

Citizenship Classes

Volunteers teach all the necessary US History and Civics lessons needed to successfully pass the US Citizenship Test. This is the last gate on a long path people take, over a period of many years, to become US citizens; a path that costs the typical immigrant family of four $10,000 in fees for Visas and other documentation. If an interested and US Homeland Security qualified resident lives in our service area, and his or her IMPACT teacher is confident they can pass the Homeland Security interview and test which are taken in English, IMPACT will pay the $705 test fee, helping low income families over that last hurdle to Naturalization. Typically, IMPACT facilitates citizenship for three individuals each year.
