WHO DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION SERVE?
Grief, Loss & Recovery provides emotional support, friendship, and a safe haven for bereaved persons who are grieving.
WHAT IS THEIR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
Whether you know it's coming or not, losing someone is a scary, lonely feeling that doesn't just go away one day. In the beginning, you may have a lot of familial and friend support, but what happens when days, months, years go by and you are still hurting?
Many grieving people feel like they have to "get over it" or "suck it up" in order to move on with their lives. Grief, Loss & Recovery is a place you can share your pain, no matter which stage of the grieving process you are in. It's also a place you can comfort others who may be dealing with a similar loss.
HOW DO YOU HELP THEM?
We are a collaboration of three women—Linda Davis of North Carolina, Brenda Penepent of Arkansas, and Joanne Glasspoole of Wisconsin. Though we equally contribute content to the Grief, Loss & Recovery Facebook page, it's really our audience that does most of the work -- it's so amazing how the community comes together to help heal and comfort one another.
- "I have lost 5 friends just this year (friends I spoke with or hung out everyday)....thank you for giving me inspiration to carry on..."
- "I just came across this page while in search of grief management. I lost my dear husband to a vehicular accident. It was very shocking and devastating to say the least. This is six years down this path with four children. It was quite tough for me in first two years and even now I'm still pulling my weight economically. But I'm coming out to help bereaved women and men to go through and come out of grief in the shortest possible time, so they can live their dreams. I welcome every support to get into grief counseling, even while sharing my life experience and my #startover process. Thanks."
- "Glad to find this page! I've lost a husband and a boyfriend in the last five years and it's definitely made me a stronger person in many ways."
