Support Groups


Children’s Bereavement Center® (CBC) and adult division Lift From Loss® provides FREE grief support groups for children, teens and adults who have experienced the loss of a loved one.

Peer grief support groups are open-ended. Participants may join groups at any time during the year after attending an Orientation. Because grief is unique to each individual, children and their families decide their length of participation at the CBC. Losses can be recent or in years past.
