Community and support are more important now than possibly ever before. The isolation that has emerged due to the current pandemic has only intensified many aspects of grief. A Memory Grows continues to remain committed to journeying with parents who are grieving the death of their child. At this time, we are unable to gather in person for our scheduled retreats and special events but we have shifted our focus to finding ways to offer high quality intentional support virtually.
Each month we will offer a variety of community and support groups. Some of these groups will be facilitated by counselors while others will be led by parents who have walked that specific journey of loss and will be a time to share and gather support. Groups will be limited in size so that all who participate will have time to share.
Registration is required so we can plan for each group. Supplies for the painting and art experientials will need to be purchased by the participant. Thanks to the generosity of our gracious donors we will be able to offer these groups at no charge to those who wish to participate. If you wish to make a donation you can do so by clicking here: amemorygrows.org/donate.
Groups & Activities

Weekly Wednesday Night Community Support
Each Wednesday night at 7pm Central Time, a group of parents gather from across the country via Zoom to offer one another support for the journey. Over the past two years we have found that together we can find our way. We are stronger when we are together, even if together means virtually. When we find others who understand this journey, it does not matter the distance between us because it is the bond that we share that unites us. We would love for you to be a part of this special group. You can come one week or every week. Sometimes we just listen, other times we laugh and cry, sometimes we talk about books and other times we share stories and work through process activities. Through it all we celebrate our children and find a sustaining connection for the days and weeks ahead.
The group is free to attend but you must register to receive the secure Zoom link. Please register below and we will be in touch with you soon!
