Support & Share Night Program

Support and Share Night – March 6th:

Join us for a story of loss and healing at our upcoming Support and Share Night on Tues, March 6th.

Speaker for March 6th is Heinrich Teworte:  The title of the speech is “Parents, Kids and Onions”

When Heinrich’s mother died 30 years after his dad’s passing, Heinrich found himself thinking about his parents. A lot. Families can be tricky structures and grieving a parent can get complicated by the specific parent-child relationship. Grieving skills learned at BFO after his wife had passed away were essential to the process. What worked, what didn’t, and how a child can simplify an adult’s grief journey.

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.  The night begins with an educational talk, followed by an opportunity to connect with others who are grieving a similar loss to yours in a supportive group environment.  Groups are facilitated by trained, understanding volunteers who have grieved and experienced a loss similar to yours.  You are not alone.  You can see our past speakers and their topics here.

The 5 peer groups provided each month include:
Loss of Spouse
Loss of Child
Perinatal Loss
Loss of
