We connect people needing support, in an online group setting, guided by professional and compassionate facilitators.


“We are collectively going through great loss in many forms. We are forced to find ways to live differently, ways to cope. We are brave. We are resilient. We support each other.” - Trudy James


Grief Comes in Many Forms

Grief is a built-in, natural response to loss. It is universal and it manifests itself in unique ways for each person. What is the same for everyone is that grief doesn’t just “go away.” It may go underground, but it wants and needs to be acknowledged.

Our team recognizes the needs of our vulnerable immigrant and BIPOC communities (Black, Indigenous, and people of color). We are actively recruiting facilitators with the cultural competence and language skills that will be required to develop the right kind of supportive services for the greatest number of people. If you have an ethnocultural group in mind that is not represented in our current offering, please contact us at to let us know.
