  • Grief & Loss Group

    Thursday May 18, 2023 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM

    Do you feel lonely and isolated with your thoughts and feelings of grief and loss? Do not worry, you are not alone. Grief and loss are feelings everyone experiences. The best way to help with these feelings is to not be alone. This March, South Buffalo Community Association is starting a “Grief and Loss Group”.


    This open group is unique because: 



    1. We support ALL forms of grief and loss with each other.

    2. Group participants run the group with the guidance of “group leaders”.

    3. Group leaders are like minded peers, not therapists or counselors.

    4. Everything said will be respected, honored, and confidential.

    5. Everyone is welcome and open to share as much or as little as you please.


    If you are interested, the group will meet the 3rd Thursday of every month at 5pm at the Tosh Collins Community Center (35 Cazenovia St, Buffalo, NY, 14220). Please contact Robert Brandon at 716-822-4532 ext. 102 if you are interested in attending the group or have any questions.
