The Downtown Coalition for Grief Support offers an educational and emotional support group to those who have lost a loved one. Excellent speakers, trained facilitators and a group of others who have experienced loss make these sessions a place of healing. Gatherings occur on Saturday mornings. Scroll down to view the schedule of speakers.
While everyone responds to grief in different ways, at different paces, one thing remains constant: the ongoing support of family, friends and those who understand loss helps us heal.
The Downtown Coalition for Grief Support is a unique resource to help adults understand and express grief, and most of all, begin moving forward. We are an all-volunteer, non-denominational organization that believes in the power of people to turn pain into promise.
Because each of our members has come through an individual experience of loss, we offer encouragement, education and comfort on both professional and personal terms.
