Support Groups

Grief Counseling, Support Groups

An ongoing service of Survivor Resources is our Support Groups, which are available for individuals and families who would like to receive support, and to connect with fellow survivors. Trained, experienced facilitators lead weekly or semi-monthly meetings. Even if your loss occurred years ago, it is never too late to seek emotional support through groups, and we welcome you.

“Don’t avoid me. Tragedy is not contagious. If you are uncomfortable with me because you don’t know what to say, then give me a hug and tell me that you care. Be patient with my moods…If you ask me how I am, be prepared to listen. When I am hurting, I have a great need to talk about my situation with someone who is truly willing to listen.”
