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.
