Support Groups

Support Groups are self-help groups where people who have common experiences with loss come together to share and help each other find healing. Our Support Groups are funded by individuals or corporate sponsors who believe that these groups are needed in the community.

"From Grief to Joy" Support Group for the Death of a Loved One
3nd Tuesday of each month from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

This grief support group is for adults who have experienced the death of a loved one. If you have lost a loved one, this group provides an opportunity to discover a healing path through loss. Even though the circumstances of loss may vary, sharing experiences with others is often the first step in moving through the journey of grief. This group is offered at no charge, funded through the generosity of Caughman-Harman Funeral Homes and Cemeteries. No pre-registration is necessary. We hope you will join us.
