Support Group and Program Services

Peer to Peer Support

LP-Peer-supportOur professional bereavement staff and trained volunteer facilitators offer guidance during each session. It is the interaction of the children, teens and adults sharing common experiences and feelings with their peers that make these sessions so life changing.  The children, teens and adults build communities together, ones that challenge them to ask the tough questions, face their fears and give each other hope.

For Children

Your child can become part of one of the following grief support groups or program services:

  • Preschool/Kindergarten (ages 3-5)
  • Elementary
  • Middle School & High School

For Adults

Unaddressed grief can lead to physical and mental health problems. At Lory's Place, you'll find the support you need. Here you can share your feelings, experiences, and memories in a support group setting.

Our professional bereavement staff and trained volunteers will guide you and offer hope as you anticipate a loved one's death or are grieving after a family member or friend dies. We offer special support groups for many types of loss from death. There are also community outreach programs that come to your organization after the death of a colleague or during a crisis.

As an adult, you may participate in the following peer groups or program services:

  • Adults-death of someone significant regardless of the cause
  • Homicide Loss Support
  • Miscarriage, still-birth, and infant death within the first year of life
  • Substance Related Loss Support
  • Suicide Loss Support

In addition to Lory's Place regularly scheduled peer support groups, Caring Circle also offers grief healing programs throughout the year.
