If you are facing the loss of a parent, spouse, child, or another loved one, the winter months can be harsh aside from the weather.

Depression, sadness, fear, longing, and more are common. For many, life is too busy to grieve, for others, grief can seem smothering. Wherever you are on your grief journey, you don’t have to face it alone. Join us for a six-week grief focused support group for adults.
