Support Groups

Christian’s Purpose is dedicated to providing the proper support for families going through their bereavement process. Although Christian’s Purpose is not a counseling or grief-share group, we do want to assist families to get the help they need during these difficult times. We have compiled a list of community services and would be more than happy to point you in the right direction and personally help you find the group that’s right for you.

GriefShare is a network of grief support groups for people grieving the death of a family member or friend. GriefShare is a safe place where you can express your emotions, or quietly while learning valuable tools to help you with your own personal grieving process. GriefShare groups include weekly video seminars, discussion groups, and a take-home workbook that will guide you through the bereavement process. GriefShare groups can be found in thousands of locations across the nation, as well as in Canada and several other countries. To find a group near you, call 1-800-395-5755 or go to their website at www.griefshare.org
