At JFCS we offer a variety of support groups within our areas of expertise: clinical services, career & economic opportunities, Klein older adults, and family stability services. We believe the power of community can bring together individuals with similar needs to work towards personal and group goals.


Grief & Loss Support Group

While every loss is unique, it can be comforting to have support from others
who have experienced loss and understand. Find help and healing for the hurt of losing a loved one in our Grief and Loss Support Group.

This group is for adults who have experienced the death of a spouse, partner, parent or other loved one and offers a safe space to find how others cope with their personal situation and gain new ideas and strategies for your own situation.  Groups are facilitated by a trained professional and meet bi-weekly.

Daytime and early evening meeting times available.  Contact services@jfcslouisville.org or call (502) 452-6341.
