BFO Ottawa is an organization made up of people who have each experienced our own grief

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our many volunteers & financial supporters

Volunteer Run

We are a volunteer-run organization that appreciates the commitment we each share to supporting others. While we have each experienced our own grief, we recognize that people grieve in deeply personal ways that are unique to them. We draw on own experiences and our professional training. 

Peer Support

We follow a peer support model, where trained facilitators work with group participants. We offer a safe and supportive environment, where people can express themselves freely. We know that this often leads to new friendships, as people connect with each other in expressing their grief on a personal level.

Respect

We treat every person with kindness, dignity, professionalism and respect. We believe in the importance of community and in creating space in our society for people who are grieving. We believe that no one should have to grieve alone. 

Community

We create partnerships within our own community. We believe in inviting others in, and in creating open and collaborative environments where we are united in supporting people who are grieving.
