Weekly Bereavement Group at The Washington Home

The Washington Home is beginning a weekly bereavement group, where those experiencing grief from the loss of a loved one can meet to honor their loved one's memory and navigate a new path forward. 


There's comfort in community and this group will offer a welcoming space for reflection and sharing with understanding friends and counselors.


If you, or someone you know is still struggling with grief, we hope you/they will consider joining this weekly group, beginning on Tuesday, January 14.

Meeting Info

The group will meet weekly on Tuesdays, from 10am-11:30am, and will be located at The Washington Home's office, located at 1875 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Suite 140, Washington, DC 20009.


It is our hope that together, we can gain strength and forge ahead.
