Bereavement Support

Our bereavement support services provide information, skills, knowledge and coping strategies to help you through your grieving process. 

Sharing your experience with the loss of a loved one can be a powerful part of the healing process. We offer one-to-one counsel, individual support or bereavement support groups that allow you to connect with others who have experienced a similar loss. 

Whether you’ve experienced the death of a parent, a child, a spouse or other loved one, our compassionate and specially trained volunteers can help you and your family through the grieving process. 

Programming for specific types of loss or for children and teens may be available in your area.
