Community Bereavement Support Services
Due to the pandemic, we are currently hosting virtual bereavement support
groups via Zoom. Groups will begin in November. Times and date are to
be determined. To participate and for more information, please call Oliva
Licea, Bereavement Coordinator at (310) 703-3352, M-F 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM.
New members are welcome to join at any time. Groups afford people the opportunity
to meet in a safe environment with other people experiencing grief and
loss. Become a member of a compassionate community. Tell your story and
be HEARD – no judgement.
