You're not alone. We're here to walk the journey with you. Community Grief Support Service is a non-profit corporation organized for the purpose of providing free compassionate counseling, education, and support for bereaved persons in the 7 county Birmingham area. Community Grief Support Service helps people to rebuild their shattered lives following the death of a loved one. Grieving people face a real choice between hope and despair. We choose hope!

Mission: Our mission is beautifully illustrated in the design of our logo. Fellow strugglers encouraging one another, supporting one another and learning from one another. Upward movement reflects the uplifting, healing power of a support group. Color blue signifies stability and unity. Emphasis on the word "community" links it to the three characters, reinforcing the concept of a support group.

You can bid for a pet portrait by Hayden Slaughter on our auction website!

"A pet portrait is more than just a picture of your animal, it's a moment in time. It's a way of celebrating that deep love and special friendship that only a pet lover can know. As a pet owner myself, I understand completely the deep bond and love that exists between us and our pets. I am humbled that something I create will keep our pets close to us and become a beautiful reminder of the pure love we have for each other. Each portrait is personal and customized."

BOOK OF THE WEEK 📖

Healing Your Grieving Heart: 100 Practical Ideas

"With sensitivity and insight, this series offers suggestions for healing activities that can help survivors learn to express their grief and mourn naturally. Acknowledging that death is a painful, ongoing part of life, it explains how people need to slow down, turn inward, embrace their feelings of loss, and seek and accept support when a loved one dies. Each book, geared for mourning adults, teens, or children, provides ideas and action-oriented tips that teach the basic principles of grief and healing. These ideas and activities are aimed at reducing the confusion, anxiety, and huge personal void so that living their lives can begin again."

"The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom." —Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani

Today we remember all the lives that were lost on September 11, 2001. We will never forget. 💙🇺🇸

When you have the site up for the art auction, please give us a link to put on FB for our friends. I had fun painting for the auction, thanks to Alabama Art Supply for enabling us. Best of Luck!
I went to a group meeting over a year ago following the passing of my wife as a result of her battle with Metastatic Breast Cancer. I was so glad I did. It has now been two years and I wrote about the caregiving, her death and the aftermath. I wanted to share it here in case anyone might benefit from sharing similar thoughts and feelings.
