For Young Widows 20's through 60's

Often women in this age group do not have peers who are going through this kind of loss, and their grief can feel very isolating. Juggling jobs, children, parents, and social obligations is hard; it feels overwhelming when spousal grief is added. This group provides the time to express and share grief, learn coping skills from one another, give and receive support, and begin the healing process.

Meets Tuesdays starting March 24, 2020 for six consecutive weeks from 5:30-7:00 p.m.

For any adult who has experienced the death of a parent. The loss of a parent is the most common form of bereavement in our country. Because of this, adult children often feel a sense of isolation and may sense an unspoken message that adult parental loss is less significant than other losses. No matter what the age of our parent or where or how the death occurred, the grief felt by an adult child can be intense and overwhelming. This group is a safe place to share feelings and experiences, ask questions, seek comfort or just listen. It is a place to receive and give support.
