Grief Support

Providing a safe place for adults and youth to reconcile loss, work through their grief, and find continued meaning in life and living.

Grief Support for Adults

We offer grief support to adults who are morning the loss of a loved one and those who are experiencing homelessness. Adults who have experienced homelessness not only experience the loss of a home and belongings, but, in some instances, have experienced loss of family, friends, jobs, and a loss of their personal identity.

We offer both individual and group grief support to adults, to help them recover their joy, peace, and sense of self, and to successfully move through the grieving process.

Grief Support for Youth

Grief has many faces. For youth, grief may be exhibited through depression, anxiety or behavioral problems. Most of us know youth who have experienced a loss but may not know how to support them. For certain types of loss, some youth may need additional support to help them work through it.

Our grief support youth group offers a caring and loving community for youth experiencing grief, to work through their mourning to a place of healing.
