Special event: Family Day – a day of hope, healing & community
August 25, 2012 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
2820 Roosevelt Road, Suite 200
Our community and nation is experiencing grief in what seems to be an all time high. While grief and loss are a natural part of the human experience, as a society we are often unprepared or uneducated about how to navigate through the pain of losing a loved one. Family Day is an inspirational community event that provides peer support, education and a platform for a caring community to come together to share resources – the result is a day of hope and healing.
“Families Helping Families” recognizes that grieving is a process that each person must work through to find some measure of peace in their new lives. “Family Day” provides support, encouragement and healing tools to help individuals and families work through the trauma and sorrow of their loss.
