BUILDING A COMMUNITY OF HOPE 

When you lose someone you love, you can often feel alone in your grief. Our Centre is committed to fostering a sense of community where you feel comforted, understood and listened to.  Our events are an opportunity to provide education and create awareness regarding the challenges people who are grieving face. 

Upcoming and Past Events

  • After someone we love dies, it is very easy to replay our experiences with them and where we might have gone wrong. "Why did I argue with Mom the day before she passed?", "Did I do everything I could for my wife at the end." Join us as we explore the could'ves, would'ves and should'ves of grief.
