Starting Again Peer Support Group

Navigating through grief after the death of a spouse is incredibly difficult, but you don’t have to go through that process alone. Starting Again is a peer-led grief support program for widows and widowers. New Hope provides a forum where people can share their experiences with others who have gone through similar loss. Discussions include dealing with grief issues, learning coping skills, and searching for answers together. Our goal is to help each person find hope, healing, and new beginnings in life. No pre-registration required – just show up.

When: First and third Thursday monthly from 7-8:30 p.m.
Where: Elementary Studio 01 and Elementary Studio 02 (use Entry 4 for easy access)

8-Week Workshop Details

This workshop is offered twice a year, in-person and virtually, to adults who are grieving the death of a loved one. It provides a safe place to express your grief and begin the healing process. Each session includes a speaker, and then participants are placed into small groups, according to their loss. Each small group is led by peer support facilitators that allow participants to connect, and share. This workshop is sponsored in part by Ward Church and is free to all participants due to the generosity of donations, grantors, and sponsors.
