Grief Support

We offer bereavement services for the families we serve.

Grief Support Group
We meet every Tuesday from 1 to 2 pm.

Find us in the back room at PERKIN'S RESTAURANT
1600 Pocatello Creek Rd. 208-233-0006

We order from the menu and pay for our own lunch, while we talk, listen, and share. 
We talk, listen, and share because it's a safe place and everything stays within our table.

We have no agenda, books, or outlines, because we discuss and listen to what is needed.

If you have to miss a week, no problem, because we are always there for you.

Some of us have mourned for years and some for weeks or months. 
Length of time doesn't matter, but YOU do matter, and you can talk about it with us.

Everyone is welcome because everyone has a need and we listen.

For more information contact Betty at 208-709-6071 or Sandra at 208-241-5688

In addition, we have provided some helpful grief support links below:

The Caring Place
The first Caring Place facility opened in Pittsburgh in 1997. Since that time, the program has expanded across Pennsylvania, with additional facilities in Erie, near Harrisburg, and in Warrendale.

Crisis, Grief and Healing
Webhealing.com, the first interactive grief website on the internet, offers discussion boards, articles, book suggestions, and advice for men and women working through every aspect of grief. The site’s founder, Tom Golden LCSW, has provided book excerpts and contact information to help those healing from loss.

With nearly 50 internet support groups plus a wide range of online resources, GriefNet provides support for those dealing with all types of loss. Their companion site, kidsaid.com, helps children and their parents deal with grief and loss in an appropriate and safe environment.

Willowgreen offers support and information for those dealing with life transition & aging, illness & caregiving, loss & grief, and hope & spirituality.  The site offers advice, products, and inspirational materials.
