Support Groups & Community Programs

Our events offer the community ways to get involved, receive support, and just have some family fun. Whether you’re attending a tour, meeting, or annual event, we welcome you to the NICST family!

Note: Due to COVID-19, tours are postponed until further notice.

Tour Thursdays: Come see us in action! Say hello to the NICST team, meet our dogs, and maybe sneak in some snuggles. Walk-ins welcome, 10AM-2PM every Thursday.
*Due to COVID-19, tours are postponed until further notice.

The following support groups are free and open to our diabetic community. As we grow other programs, NICST will also provide quality programming and support groups for our other clients.

TypeYOU Support Group: Find support in community. Discuss the unique challenges you face in your day-to-day life and receive help from other insulin-dependent diabetics. We welcome you as a unique individual in our community space. Open to all. Type You meets the first and third Tuesday of every month at 6:30pm. Meeting link: Type-You.org

TypeTEEN: We are excited about our support group, TypeTEEN – a safe space for youth ages 10-18 to discuss what matters to them with their peers. TypeTEEN is hosted by D4D client/dog team Samantha Gomez and Megumi, who have been thriving in our community since 2016. TypeTEEN meets the first Monday of every month at 6:30pm.
