Some of these groups are free due to generous individuals and grants, for others a donation is appreciated, and in some cases your health insurance will cover you.  Scholarships are also available. Do not let lack of financial resources keep you from registering. For more information and to register for these groups, call Anchorpoint at 412-366-1300.
