Loss Affects Everyone

Grief is a universal life experience that we all share. However, the way in which we experience it is unique to each person and each relationship lost. From husbands, wives, and children to parents, grandparents, siblings and friends – loss affects everyone.

As a peer support organization, we understand both the pain of loss and the need for age and loss specific support programs. It is our mission to reach grieving people more effectively and with greater impact through changing despair to hope, heartbreak to healing, and transforming grief into life changing new beginnings.
