Holiday Resources

The holidays can be difficult for many, especially those who are grieving a loved one. See below for some resources for additional support this holiday season.

Up, Up, & Away!

When clients first connect in our support groups, they are welcomed into our loving community of people who understand and honor grief. However, these connections often continue to grow and extend far beyond the walls (or should we say Zoom windows) of The Healing Center.

Recently, one Healing Center group decided to plan some in-person gatherings separate from their regular Zoom group meetings. Not content with simply meeting for coffee each month, they planned a group hot air balloon ride!

Check out these awesome photos. We hope they serve as a reminder of the beauty and vibrancy of our community.
