Facebook Groups | Capital District Moms

There has been many local Facebook groups created in order to come together as a community in this very difficult time.  I thought that it would be helpful to put a list together of these groups to help everyone. If you know of any other local Facebook groups with at least 50 members that were formed to support the community during this fight against the coronavirus, please send me a message via Instagram or Facebook.  Thanks!

518 healthcare worker support through COVID-19 – click here to join the Facebook group

“Hey everyone. Wanted to create a support group for healthcare workers in our area. The immense amount of pressure, responsibility, and anxiety we are all feeling is so much to handle. I wanted to create a group to help others through this as we are not alone. It’s helpful to hear what’s going on in surrounding hospitals, offices and testing sites. Please add others you feel could benefit from this. RN, LPN, CNAs, aides, medical receptionists.. anyone can apply in the healthcare field for this group.”
