We use Zoom, a user-friendly video-conferencing service that is used for work, education, worship, social work, telehealth, and even virtual parties.

Before participating in your first Zoom video meeting, we suggest you download Zoom and try it out, to become familiar with it:

You can also participate in our Zoom video support meetings and informal video chats via old-fashioned telephone.

We hold informal video chats between monthly support meetings, so that we can check in on one another, and share information, during the crisis.

Zoom offers helpful how-to articles and video tutorials.

USA Today offers “10 Tips to Get the Most out of Zoom.”

In March 2020, CBS broadcast a humorous look at using Zoom at home.
