Grief Support Groups

Cornerstone of Hope offers a personalized support group experience, open to all, regardless of ethnic, cultural and faith backgrounds.

We offer structured grief support groups each quarter led by professional facilitators. Our grief support groups have a specialized curriculum according to the type of loss experienced and are designed to support the unique needs of grievers. At the weekly support groups, facilitators guide participants through issues specific to the loss type, and provide opportunities for them to share their feelings and experiences. Each group meets for 8-10 weeks.

Adult Support Groups

Adult Grief

Losing a parent, sibling or friend can deeply impact an individual. This group is for all adults who are grieving the death of a loved one no matter the relationship.

Young Adult Grief

This group is for people who are ages 18 through 32 years old and grieving the loss of a loved one. This group brings people together, who because of their age, are able to find a strong support system and education together.

Spouse Loss

The death of a spouse can leave a huge void in one’s life. This group allows those who have lost a spouse or significant other to find hope and support.

Child Loss

The death of a child leaves parents feeling brokenhearted and alone. This group brings parents together, no matter the age of the child, to share and find hope on their journey.

Pregnancy and Infant Loss

Losing a child in-utero or as an infant is devastating and not always acknowledged or understood by many. This group allows individuals and couples the opportunity to share this monumental loss and begin to heal together. General grief issues will be addressed, but we will also discuss the specific needs that arise after a death of an infant, whether through miscarriage, neo-natal, still birth or other infant loss (ages 2 and under).

Suicide Loss

When a person has lost a loved one to suicide, their grief can be complicated. Cornerstone is offering a group specifically for these survivors. General bereavement issues will be touched on, but particular attention will be given to the specific needs and stigmas that arise due to loss from suicide.

Murder Loss

When a person has lost a loved one to murder, it is a tragic and unique loss not always understood by others. Cornerstone of Hope is offering a group specifically for those facing this sudden loss. General bereavement issues will be addressed with particular attention given to the specific needs that arise after a traumatic death.

 

 
Complicated Loss

Sometimes there are individuals in our lives that are hard to love because our relationship with them was difficult. The people we lose often had very human problems-addictions, mental health issues, abuse/neglect, gambling, and infidelity. These problems forge a lasting impact in our lives. So, when death strikes we are left with conflicting emotions about the individual, ourselves, and our relationship with them. This group offers a safe place to explore these feelings and unresolved issues with others who understand. Join us for this educational and supportive group that will provide helpful insight into moving forward with hope.

Suicide Loss for Parents

 When a parent has lost a child to suicide, their grief can be complicated. Cornerstone is offering a group specifically for these survivors. General bereavement issues will be addressed but with particular attention given to the specific needs for parents that arise due to loss from suicide.

 

Military Loss

TAPS is tragedy assistance for anyone who has lost a military loved one, regardless of the relationship or the circumstances of the death. Founded in 1994, TAPS is a front line resource to military families. We invite you to join us as we provide support, care and hope with fellow survivors in a spirit of friendship and understanding. You do not have to attend every month, only when you are able or feel that you need support.

Overdose Loss

Cornerstone has recognized a great need for a support group for families that have lost a loved one to overdose. This unique loss can leave families with many unanswered questions along with a myriad of difficult emotions. This group hopes to bring people together who have experienced similar losses, offer some education about the addiction process, offer support for the numerous emotional reactions that accompany this particular loss, and provides some helpful insight for moving forward with hope.

Support Groups for Teens & Children

“This group experience has given me the hope to go on and the realization that although things are different, there is the ability to move onward. It is good to be able to share with those that have walked the same path.”
