Friends of Hospice, Inc.

Everyone experiences a loss of a loved one sometime in our lives.  Whether it be from old age, terminal illness, suicide, ​or accident, we are never quite prepared for the flood of emotions and brokenness within. We all experience and react differently to grief. We take one day at a time and know that there is hope and resources to help along the healing journey.


​Friends of Hospice, Inc. provides bereavement support groups. One group meets Tuesday evenings
from 7:00 to 8:30pm for eight weeks.  Friday Group #1 meets every Friday morning from 9:30 to 11:00am and Group #2 meets every Friday from 11:30-1:00pm for 8 weeks.
