Who We Are and What We Do
Joy in the Mourning® Center for Life Losses is a faith-based, non-profit organization that was founded to provide programs and people to help individuals and families cope with the different losses of life and return to the joy of living.
We offer support groups and grief recovery programs to help those who are grieving. We also offer classes to help professionals and lay people learn more about how to help grieving people. If you are a nurse, social worker, or professional counselor, we offer specialized continuing education programs in grief intervention and counseling. Please contact us if you are interested in sponsoring one of these programs or if you want to find out more about them.

We have helped more than 2,000 people in the South Carolina Midlands to “return to joy” after experiencing a loss. With your support, we can continue to help others.
