The group Young Adult Beginning Experience (YABE) of Spokane is sponsoring a weekend retreat for young adults who have lived in a single-parent home through divorce, separation or death. The weekend is designed to give young adults over the age of 18 a chance to interact with other young adults who are in the same situation.
The weekend retreat is scheduled for April 11-13. YABE is sponsored by the Catholic Church but the retreat is open to people of all denominations.
