The funeral is over and the cards and flowers have stopped coming. Most of the people around you return to their normal lives, but your grief continues and you feel alone.
Our Grief Support Group meets on Sundays starting at 4 p.m. to help you cope with your grief in a warm, caring environment. We will walk with you on the long path through grief towards healing and hope for the future.
You are welcome to begin attending our GriefShare group at any point. Each session is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will be able to pick up any sessions you missed in the next 13-week cycle. The group meets in Classroom 5.
For more information, call Pat Williams at 467-5576.

Every third Saturday of each month, families receive respite care and a special evening for four hours for their special needs child and his or her siblings. If you are a parent in need of this service, contact Vanessa Brandau at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will send you an application.
As the program grows, we will need more volunteers, so if you are interested in volunteering, contact Vanessa as well.
