New Hope Center for Grief Support
Posted By: Rick Guttersohn (June 9, 2016)
When a loved one dies, it throws you into a messy state where nothing makes sense and basic functioning is hard. Yet our culture doesn't understand grief and tells us to "get over it." We go back to work after a few bereavement days and are expected to move on with life. New Hope Center for Grief Support is there with emotional and educational support to help grievers pick up the pieces.
My father recently went through New Hope Center for Grief Support's workshop after his wife (my mom) passed away. I have seen an incredible change in him since attending that workshop. He expresses his feelings with our family. He has found new purpose in life, and he even hangs out with his support group once a month. The best part was that there was NO COST! $1,000 would help continue their great work in the community!
