Help within our Community
In addition to our Aftercare services, we offer rotating workshops and insight into what to expect following the death of a loved one. Throughout the year, we hold several memorial and remembrance services to honor those who have died, as well as those who have served our country faithfully.
Another unique opportunity we offer is our monthly luncheon on the fourth Tuesday of each month at a local restaurant. Members of this small group have looked forward to having lunch together for more than 12 years. This is a time of fellowship and encouragement and we would love to have you our join us at our grief support groups in South Carolina. Please contact Dru Strickland at (843) 881.9293 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for the monthly schedule or check our Events tab.
