Downtown Minneapolis Coalition for Grief Support

August 5 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Compassionate Support for All

Lynn Jaffe, Personal story-Child loss

Founded in 1997, the Downtown Minneapolis Coalition for Grief Support is a unique non-profit resource to help Twin Cities adults deal with the death of a child, family member, friend, spouse, or partner.

Through encouragement and education, we help those in pain to understand and express grief, and most of all, begin moving forward.

The group is managed entirely by volunteers and trained facilitators from eight Minneapolis congregations. Because each of our members has come through an individual experience of loss, we offer support on both professional and personal terms.

The Downtown Coalition holds weekly Saturday meetings that are free and open to the public, regardless of religious affiliation. The meetings provide a safe, understanding environment for grief education, comfort and recovery.

9:30 am – Registration 
10:00 am – Speaker
10:30-11:30 am – Small Group discussion*

*At 10:30, we break into small groups, each led by an experienced, trained facilitator:
Spouse or partner loss
Family or friend loss
Child loss
