GRIEF SUPPORT GROUP & SOCIAL UPDATE 


Our grief support group, The Next Chapter, offers a small, informal setting for connecting with others who have experienced the loss of a loved one, as well as occasional guest speakers.
As a precautionary measure against the rising number of COVID-19 cases,  we will suspend in-person Next Chapter meetings until further notice. If you are interested in joining, we'd still like to hear from you! Contact the number on the flyer above (973-525-9672) for more information and to stay connected.

 


GRIEF SUPPORT SOCIAL: LIVING THIS LIFE UPDATE

The Next Chapter, our grief support group, has received such a positive response that we have created an offshoot of this group, Living THIS Life, which will offer a variety of programs to suit our members' needs, including presentations, meditations, movies, game days, and other social events. PLEASE NOTE: We ask that only those who have suffered through the loss of a loved one attend these events. Limiting Living THIS Life events to people who share this personal bond will help create much-needed lifelong connections among the group's members. As a precautionary measure against the rising number of COVID-19 cases,  we will suspend Living This Life events until further notice. If you are interested in joining, we'd still like to hear from you! Contact the group's coordinator, Lauren Seiner, at 973-525-9672 for more information and to stay in touch.
