In addition to the bereavement services for the families we serve, we have provided some helpful grief support links below:
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.
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.
The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) website contains a Grief & Loss section with grief-related articles and information.
The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s website provides a host of information and resources for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury and their caregivers.
First Baptist Church in Cambridge is offering a 12-week GriefShare support group for those in the community who are grieving the loss of a family member or close friend. This non-denominational program features Christ-centered, biblical teaching that focuses on grief topics associated with the death of a loved one. Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family have returned to their daily life routines. GriefShare will be held on Tuesdays, 6:00 - 8:00 pm, beginning August 16 and ending November 1, 2022 in the Fireside room with facilitators Steve and Judy Tunell. There is no cost for the sessions, but there is a participant's workbook available for $20, which is very helpful. Please call the church to register - 763-689-1173.
