South Minneapolis Coalition for Grief Support
2018 Fall Series

The South Minneapolis Coalition for Grief Support provides education & support for those who are grieving. Support groups are designed for adults experiencing grief as a result of the death of a loved one.

Understanding the grief process and the many emotions involved in working through one’s grief makes the journey less painful. Guest speakers share their own experience and professional knowledge on grief and loss. Small discussion groups follow the speaker each week, led by trained facilitators.

  • Groups are open-ended; come as you feel the need.
  • Presentations are made by clergy, grief educators and peers .
  • Topics cover a wide range of grief support needs and concerns.
  • There are separate discussion groups for spouse loss and other losses.
  • Individuals may join the group at any time.
  • A suggested donation of $5 per session is welcome.
