Here’s what our host site leaders and participants say:

I can’t put my finger on it but it has helped me so much. I feel like my burden of grief had been lessened. It was grueling and wonderful.

Support Gathering Participant

It is a safe place to cry,
laugh, make a joke,
or silently sit without
fear of judgment.
