Easily Offer Support Following the Funeral

“Thank you for offering such a wonderful resource for people like myself who are grieving to know I am not alone in this journey. I look forward to our next grief support group meeting." - Ann

Imagine offering the families you serve the opportunity to feel the way Ann did after attending her first Hope After Heartache grief support group. Imagine their appreciation to your funeral home for offering personal support following their loved one’s funeral that goes beyond a list of resources. Now imagine that you can offer this with little staff time, no need for expertise in the grieving process and at no charge.

This is OGR’s Hope After Heartache virtual grief support group and it is simple to get started. We will mail you a templated letter to send to every family you serve with the login details for the monthly grief support group that meets on Zoom. Once they attend a meeting, they will be invited to a second monthly meeting along with a private Facebook group page where their connections can continue between sessions.

The group is led by Nancy Weil, who serves on OGR’s staff and has led grief support groups for almost 20 years. She is a Certified Grief Management Specialist, Funeral Celebrant and well qualified to lead each session. She shares coping tools, leads facilitated discussions and witnesses the healing and support that takes place every single time.

Your funeral home also has access to blogs, videos and other content for your website. Templated community remembrance services are also yours for the asking along with marketing support to get the word out about your program.

There is no time to wait! Join more than 40 of your fellow members and offer a grief support program that will leave the families you serve sharing with you that, “After the meeting, I felt a little less alone in what I’m going through and this morning I felt a drop of hope."

Check out fellow member Kevin Stockham's website, StockhamFamily.com/Grief-Support, to see how OGR's materials can be placed onto your funeral home's website, turning it from a template into a truly unique resource.
