The Support You Need:
Grief Support Group

meet and talk about the challenges which result from some of life’s
very hard transitions. We share, in a confidential way, responses
to these very significant life changes. Although the focus has
not been primarily upon “fixing,” there has been a real benefit from
expressing feelings and responding to each others thoughts and
experiences. No need to sign up; just show up.
