Support & Share Night Program

For over 35 years, this monthly program has been supporting individuals and families on their journey of grief. It provides an educational component and a peer support group component. Each month we provide an opportunity for you to connect with others in one of the 5 peer support groups that are led by our understanding and compassionate volunteers.  Occasionally we have a guest speaker at the beginning of evening. You can see our past speakers and their topics here.

Our speaker for the month of June is Gail Christy.  She will be speaking about holidays, celebrations and occasions that are a part of summer.  These can be a challenge when one is grieving.  Come listen to Gail as she gives us tips, tricks and ideas for how to get through the summer.  Gail has been involved with BFO for 20 years in many capacities.  Currently, she is a Professional Consultant for BFO’s support programs, provides grief and bereavement training to new volunteers, and is a trained facilitator.

The 5 peer groups provided each month include:
Loss of Spouse
Loss of Child
Perinatal Loss
Loss of
Parent/Sibling/Friend
