Special Events

Special events at Thresholds are always a great time – but they’re also more than that. They’re an opportunity for our supporters to connect with our work, each other, our members, and our staff. Each of you are a critical piece of building a better mental health safety net in our communities so that everyone has access to the care they need. We hope that you can join us at an upcoming event!

If you have a question about one of our upcoming events, please contact Julia Jimenez, Director of Special Events, by email or at 773-572-6404.
