Grief Center Offerings in November
Hope for the Holidays
If you are facing grief at the “most wonderful time of the year,” or would like to support someone who is, please join us for this seminar on 12/7 while we find Hope for the Holidays. The holiday focus on togetherness, gratitude, and celebration can present a challenge for those of us who have lost someone important and make the space they left empty all the more real.

Tinsel & Tears Workshop
Join us on 12/8 for this holiday workshop, designed specifically for grieving children and adults of all ages.

Alive’s grief counselors will provide tips and strategies for incorporating your loved one into holiday traditions. Register here.
