Virtual & In-Person LOFT Group Form
As of August 2021, The LOFT is still currently offering many of our Peer Support, Social Groups, and Events, virtually via Zoom and some groups are coming back to meeting in-person at the center. This LOFT Group Form indicates whether an event is taking place virtually or in-person.
Zoom allows group members and participants to join group meetings virtually by either video chat or calling in. Zoom is FREE to use for participants. You can download Zoom on any smart phone, tablet, PC, or Mac. Visit:
for more information or visit your app store on your device.
The purpose of this group form is to ensure community members are able to attend the groups that they are interested in and get the link to join the appropriate group. Participation in The LOFT's Virtual Group requires you to follow safe space guidelines linked below. All information submitted on this form will be kept confidential.
Once you fill out this Google Form, a LOFT staff member will follow up with you regarding the unique zoom access link for the group(s) you request. Each zoom access link is unique to the DATE and GROUP it is associated with. The link will not work outside of the scheduled meeting time.
For the safety of our community and as an added security measure, LOFT staff may contact you via phone or email before you are sent the zoom link to ensure that all group participants are accessing our groups appropriately and in accordance with our group guidelines.
We respect your privacy and understand not everyone may feel comfortable entering personal information on-line. You can receive access to The LOFT's Virtual Groups by contacting a LOFT staff member at #914-948-2932 and leaving a message. Please indicate on your message if The LOFT needs to use discretion when returning your call.
