Virtual LOFT Group Form

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.
