Grief Support

Here for you after the funeral.

Coping with loss is a personal experience-one in which family and friends may not be able to relate. Honoring your grieving process takes an understanding. Being aware of your emotions, the emptiness a loss leaves can be trying at times. You may feel overwhelmed and alone. We are here to support you.

Grief does not end with the funeral and neither does our service to you. We will provide assistance and support for as long as you need it. Our Grief Support Services Program, support groups and resource services are available to our community at no charge.

All groups are facilitated by –
Victoria Assumma, LCSW, ACSW, OSW-C, CCATP
Grief & Bereavement Counselor
