Winter session of Grief Support Group begins on February 20

The loss of a spouse or life partner is one of the most difficult things most people will ever endure. Each person’s journey through grief, mourning, and adjustment  is unique, but no one should go through the process alone. Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JFCS) is committed to supporting community members’ mental health and well-being across the lifespan, and we are here to help bereaved individuals begin to heal and rebuild their lives. We will be offering a new session of our Grief Support Group this winter. The first meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 20 at 10:30am, in person at the JFCS Main Office (1301 Springdale Road, Suite 150).

The Grief Support Group is intended for individuals aged 60 and older who are mourning the recent death of a spouse or life partner. Over the course of six biweekly meetings, participants will find safe and supportive space, facilitated by an experienced and caring JFCS social worker, to share their emotions and learn how to integrate their loss into their new reality. There is a $36 registration fee (scholarships available). Advance registration is required by contacting Reva Farenback-Brateman at (856) 424-1333 ext. 1184 or 

The Grief Support Group is sponsored by LifeForce Caregivers for the Elderly, with grant funding by the Raymond & Gertrude R. Saltzman Foundation.
