Healing From Loss

We recognize that a family member or loved one’s passing from this life is a difficult and painful experience. We recognize the personal nature of grieving and the individual response that each person has in this process. The goal is healing from loss through support opportunities that occur after family and friends have returned to their routines. These opportunities include a six session small group program offered at specific times through the year followed by individual and small group continued support opportunities.
