Grief Support Group / Educational Evenings
This program is for adults who have experienced the loss of a spouse, parent, or other loved one. The purpose is to offer understanding, suggestions for coping, support, friendship and, most of all, hope to bereaved adults. We all will have to face the death of someone we love sometime. Surviving the feelings of sadness and loss is a process that involves both emotional and behavioral reactions.

This grieving process takes us through the initial response of shock and sadness, through acceptance and understanding, and eventually to the rebuilding of our lives. This group will hopefully help you understand the grieving process and give you some ideas about how you may be able to help yourself through this difficult time.
