JourneyCare grief support groups and events provide a nonjudgmental, confidential outlet for any adult or youth who has lost a loved one, whether by illness or trauma. Losing a person you love is one of life’s most difficult challenges. The grief process can include a range of feelings and reactions. Learning about the impact of grief and how to cope are some of the best ways to begin healing.


Our grief support programs include:

  • Grief groups for adults who have lost a loved one
  • Family workshops
  • Support services for children and teens, including summer camps for kids
