Who We Serve

Has a member of your family died? You are not alone. Whether you are newly bereaved, or dealing with a loss in your past, we wish you strength as you face the pain. You have already taken the first step by visiting here -- we know how much courage it takes to reach out. We have been there, and we can help the healing begin.

We can help. We provide a place for you to discuss your experiences and learn about grief with others who have been there. We give you a chance to talk, in a confidential setting, about how your loss affects your life. By sharing with others who have been there, you may learn how to cope by gaining insight into your own thoughts and feelings.

Who we serve. Currently we offer mutual support groups that are co-facilitated by bereaved volunteers and supported by professional advisors, for:

  • Parents of an infant child (including miscarriages, babies that are born still and newborn/infant deaths)
  • Parents of a young child or adult child
  • Children ages 5-8 yrs and 9-12 yrs old who have experienced the death of a parent/caregiver or sibling
  • Youth 13-17 years of age who have experienced the death of a parent/caregiver, sibling or close friend
  • Young adults (18-30) who have experienced the death of a parent/caregiver or sibling
  • Adults (over 30) who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, spouse or partner

Our members have experienced deaths in their families from all causes: prolonged or short-term illnesses like cancer and HIV/AIDS as well as sudden or traumatic deaths from heart attacks, accidents, murder and suicide.
