The Healing and Hope Virtual Grief Support Group meets the 1st Thursday of each month from 7:00-8:30 p.m. This education/discussion-based group is for any adults who are grieving the death of a loved one and prefer an online group to in-person meetings.

GriefKnits Support Group

Apr 8, 2021 07:00 PM to Apr 8, 2021 08:30 PM

The GriefKnits Support Group meets the 2nd Thursday of each month from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Knitting has shown positive mental health benefits for grievers. Come and meet others who are grieving the death of a loved one and learn to knit or bring another craft project to work on. 

 

If you’re a griever who already knows how to knit/crochet, bring your current project and gather with them for conversation and fellowship. If you don’t have arts/crafts materials, they have lots of supplies you can use.  They provide the knitting supplies for our new knitters too. 

 

*This group usually meets at the DMTF Center for Grieving Families, 7 S. Earl St., Shippensburg, but is currently online due to Covid 19 so at the time, we can’t offer knitting instruction but we’re still offering the other benefits of the group – the amazing support and encouragement provided by connecting with fellow grievers. 

 

Pre-registration is required by contacting us at drewmichaeltaylor@pa.net so that we can send you the Zoom link prior to each meeting.

The Perfect Blend: Coffee, Crafting & Conversation

Apr 7, 2021 to Apr 28, 2021

The Perfect Blend: Coffee, Crafting & Conversation is a unique grief support group for adults who are grieving the death of a loved one (recent loss or years ago). The group meets every Wed. morning from 10 a.m. – noon at the DMTF Center for Grieving Families, 7 S. Earl St., Shippensburg, PA. Participants bring their own craft projects (or use our supplies) and while they craft, they talk about grief or everything but grief. It’s a unique way to connect with fellow grievers in a positive, healing way.

 

We are seeking to create relationships that extend beyond the group in order to support and sustain us at difficult times in our grief journey. For more information, contact the DMTF at 717-532-8922 or drewmichaeltaylor@pa.net.

 

(*this group currently meets on Zoom due to Covid 19 but we plan to return to in-person meetings when the weather is warm enough to meet outside at our grief center in Shippensburg, PA)
