Begins August 27, 2014 - October 15, 2014.

The journey through grief after the loss of a loved one can be very difficult. While every loss is different, and every individual grieves in his or her own way, grief shares common characteristics and feelings. Grief Recovery provides a place where participants can know they are not alone and can gain support and valuable tools to help while navigating the challenging path of grief.
