Finding HOPE Support Group

By coming together in a safe and understanding environment, members will share experiences, learn about grief and create their own toolkit of resources to help navigate through their own grief journey.

This group is for men and women whose partner or spouse has died and who have dependent children at home and who are in the early stages of grief.

Goals of this group are to:

  • build a community of support with others who have experienced a similar loss
  • provide education about grief
  • create realistic expectations of your own grief journey
  • learn coping tools and strategies
  • share stories
  • understand children’s grief and how we can support them

This is an 8 week support group that meets once a week for 2 hrs.

Next date for this group is April 20, 2017 – June 8, 2017.

Making TRaCS Support Group

Conversations will focus on the continuing challenges experienced along the journey of grief, and how the death of a spouse or partner impacts our daily lives. Shared experiences will allow participants to engage in themes that relate to relationships, parenting alone, the enormity of daily responsibilities, and how our grief has redefined us.

This support program is focused for those who are farther along in their grief journey or who have already attended a group, and are looking for continued peer support.

Goals of this group are to:

  • continue to build your widowed community of support
  • explore the ongoing impact of grief in daily life
  • recognize the challenges you face as a solo parent
  • further understand our children’s grief and how it defines them
  • learn how to integrate the memory of your spouse as you create a new life for you and your family

This an 8 week group that meets once a week for 2 hrs.

Group runs once per year based on interested participants.

There is no cost to attend.
