Grief’s Journey to Launch New Grief Support Program This Month
On Saturday, April 21, Grief’s Journey (www.griefsjourney.org) will launch their new grief support program called “Support Without Borders.”
Support Without Borders is a family support program for youth ages 3-18 and their adult caregivers who are grieving the separation of a loved one due to immigration challenges. This bilingual (English/Spanish) support group is free and will take place the 3rd Saturday of every month, beginning April 21, from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. at Grace United Methodist Church. This group is open for families to begin at any time. During the sessions, youth and adults will work with trained facilitators in separate age/development groups to process their grief and build healthy coping skills. A light snack will be provided.
At Grief’s Journey, their vision is that “no one has to walk their grief journey alone.” They believe everyone has a right to excellent and compassionate grief support and that the community is stronger with it. All of their programs are free of charge. In addition to this new program, they offer bereavement support as well as support for families who are facing a serious illness or injury.
