The Third Place
The Third Place is a place other than 1st, home or 2nd, work where people can go to meet and feel part of a community.
We offer families in the Silicon Valley an opportunity to come together for innovative workshops, presentations, and discussion groups. These non-sectarian programs are supported by Christ Episcopal Church and Ventana School and are open to the community.
