About Online Support Group

Faith and Hope Hospice is seeking to expand the grief support services we offer while adapting to changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We greatly appreciate your feedback, and want to ensure that the services we provide match the needs of our clients. It should take about ten minutes to answer the questions in the survey.

Support groups can be an effective way to cope with grief. Many people find that talking with others about their loss, especially other people who are grieving, helps them through their grief journey. Support groups are also one of the most requested resources from the families we serve.

Our groups will be led by a social worker, trained volunteers, and may occasionally host a guest speaker. All groups will take place online with video conference through Zoom. This is to practice social distancing to prevent spreading the coronavirus. Online groups can also allow more people to attend and avoids driving.


All groups will be offered at no cost to the family and friends of hospice patients. Other members of the community are welcome to participate, but may have a small charge to cover cost of materials. However, no one will be turned away for an inability to pay.


Drop-in Groups: Open to anyone, no registration required. These groups would focus on grief education, support and comradery with others facing loss similar to your own. These groups are ongoing, with no defined end date. The size of the group and attendees fluctuate week to week.

COVID-19 Group: Focused on losses that have occurred due to COVID-19 and other losses that have occurred during mandated social distancing. This group will be like the drop-in group but focused on coping with grief impacted by COVID-19

RSVP Groups: Requires pre-registration. Group size is limited to 5-10 participants, and there are no new participants after the first session. These groups meet weekly, and they usually last 3, 6, or 8 weeks.
