ADULT PROGRAMS

Losing a loved one can be overwhelming.  Our open grief support groups offer peer

support and education for those experiencing a loss of a loved one.  Our open groups are held in a supportive environment that fosters hope and healing.  They provide individuals with the opportunity to learn, share, and engage in conversation that will help reflect upon and work through their grief.  

In order to attend, participants must be 18+ and have had an individual support session with a peer support staff member.  Prior to attending each group, all participants must register during the week group runs. There is no time commitment necessary for our open groups.
