Coffee Talk gets off to a great start!

Carrie's Heart successfully kicked off our monthly Coffee Talk this spring. Coffee Talk is a informal support group for mothers of children with disabilities in the Katy / West Houston area.

Coffee Talk is led by Paige Whitten. Paige serves on the Carrie's Heart board of directors and is a Teen Leadership teacher in Katy ISD. Paige is also the proud mother of a very special little girl named Anna & her little brother Cooper.

Coffee Talk is a casual Saturday morning get together for coffee at Dunn Bros. Coffee in Katy. Mother's of children with special needs of all ages are welcome to attend. Coffee Talk is an opportunity for mom's to get a moment away to relax, have a cup of coffee and visit with other women who share similar life experiences to their own. Through Coffee Talk we hope that our mom's can develop a network of support, share & learn, and take some time our for themselves!

Check the Carrie's Heart website under the Upcoming Events section to see when the next Coffee Talk is scheduled. You can also email Carrie at carrie@carriesheart.org to be put on our email list to receive updates about all of our events & projects. For questions about Coffee Talk or to introduce yourself please feel free to contact Paige at paige@carriesheart.org
