Support Groups

IMPORTANT CORONAVIRUS NOTICE

HOPE For Bereaved, Inc Reopening Plan for Support Groups. HOPE has implemented the following guidelines to comply with the requirements set forth by the Department of Health and the CDC. In order to reopen some temporary adjustments have to be made. We have done our best to lower risk and still try and keep a safe atmosphere.  All complementary services will be suspended for now (coffee, water & cookies).  Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to allow for the transition process.  Upon entering the building, we ask that you use hand sanitizer. All staff and clients must wear face masks in the building, please make sure to bring your own. We will have masks available if needed. All clients attending support groups will have a quick questionnaire to go over and we will be taking forehead temperatures.  All attendees must wear their mask in the group. We will keep a log of every person who enters the building/attends group or counseling for contact tracing should it become necessary.  We have set up the conference room to comply with the social distancing requirements. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. If you are not quite comfortable attending a support group at this time, it’s okay.  You can join the group by using a conference line we’ve established.  Call HOPE for details.  The organization was founded on the understanding that sharing the journey from grief to hope with others who are going through or have experienced the same suffering is essential to the healing process.
