Additional Resources & Community Support

    The first year following a loss is the most difficult for many persons, so you’ll have access to occasional mailings and phone calls from us during that time as a reminder of the support options available to you. Of course, you may withdraw from these services at any time. Additionally, you may borrow materials from our grief library and peruse some of our favorite resources below. If none of these options are a good fit for you, simply call us at 828-692-6178 or email us here and we will do our best to find right resource for your needs.
