Join us on the first Thursday of every month for Family Group from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Designed for adults and children who have experienced a significant loss, this group provides an opportunity to have fun, eat ice cream, and participate in activities that will strengthen the family connection.

After creating your own dessert masterpiece at our sundae bar, parents and kids will be separated into age appropriate groups. Parents will be able to connect with others who are raising grieving kids while kids will hear from others their age that they are not alone in their experience.
