For anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one, it can be a hard and lonely road to recovery. A little encouragement can go a long way in easing the feelings of confusion and sadness that are part of the grieving process. A local non-profit community agency, the Dublin Counseling Center, facilitated a new program to help parents grieve. The program is open to all parents who have lost a child, regardless of the cause. This support group meets twice a month at a local facility, and the frequency of visits is up to the parents who attend.
The success of this support group was made possible by the community and the Dublin Foundation’s monetary support, which aided with the organization of the sessions. Lending a hand to those in need is why the Foundation exists, and they are proud to have been a part of the positive impact “At a Loss” has had on the parents of the community.
