Grief

The journey through loss and grief is a difficult and challenging time for individuals. That bereavement pilgrimage is often made more difficult by social attitudes that deny the validity of people’s grief experience and question its natural and necessary role in healing and restoring a person. In addition, the helping resources available in the community are not always well known or publicized.
