Grief support groups can provide a much-needed bridge over the difficult days, weeks and months after a loss. Participants discover that the group is a place where understanding, encouragement and practical suggestions are readily found. Designed to meet different needs, all of our groups are open to anyone in the community who is coping with the loss of a loved one. Our groups typically meet on a rotating basis through the year. Contact Pathways of Hope at 937-258-4991 for the schedule.
