Stay tuned for our next Support Group.

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. “Going to GriefShare feels like having warm arms wrapped around you when you’re shivering.” GriefShare groups meet weekly for 13 weeks to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each week has a video, supportive discussion, and workbook discussion. The cost for the workbook is $15. Please contact Tom Jones (813.476.4535) or Tracey Porath (813.240.5221) for information regarding NBCC’s GriefShare Group or the GriefShare website for more information the main organization.
