Happy New Year 2023

2023 promises to bring additional programs. Paper Bag Ladies of Rochester will continue to focus on assisting those who need to work in identifying interpersonal strengths, mental health goals and general wellness and personal stability. We offer a variety of online programs as well as in person programs which include open studio art, farming, hiking, and creative writing. In addition, we have a forest and nature program available for those seeking inner peace and reflection. All programs are of no cost to participants.

We welcome Ms Genny Ecclestonr as the 2023 Intern, from Rochester Institute of Technology. It is exciting to have Ms Genny Eccleston on-board as we get program pieces and ideas together to assist at risk youth in Rochester.
