Returning to In-Person Groups!                       

After a year of providing virtual support groups, we are thrilled to announce our plans for returning to in-person groups. This plan is based on safety recommendations by county and state health departments

Consistency is particularly important for grieving kids.  So as we prepare to reopen for in-person groups, we want to be as sure as possible that we will remain open for all of our families.  

Good Grief will continue to provide virtual support groups through June 3rd.  In September, our families have the choice of attending either in-person or virtually. We have found that virtual groups are a comfortable option for families with scheduling conflicts, health concerns, and for families who live outside the metro Toledo area.

In July and August, Good Grief staff will focus on new policies and procedures related to social distancing and maintaining safety, training new volunteers and refreshing skills of volunteers who haven't been facilitating groups during the pandemic, and preparing our spaces for the return of kids, teens, and adults.

Beginning September 2021, Good Grief in-person groups will begin again!  (Our exact start date will be announced soon!)  We will continue our usual schedule of meeting every other week, and we look forward to seeing families and volunteers in our center again.

We are extremely grateful to our generous community for continuing to support Good Grief's programs for kids, teens, young adults, and families who are grieving. It has been a challenging time, especially for those who are grieving. With your help, our support groups have continued to grow, and we look forward to serving more families in the future.

Thank you!
