Training & Education

Grow Together.

Growing means moving from where we are now, toward where we want to go – a place where hope shines brightly again. Growing together means no one has to make this journey alone. As the region’s cornerstone for grief support, we’re committed to offering a variety of quality continuing education opportunities for volunteers and community professionals. The workshops described below are regularly offered at our main office. We also travel nationally for trainings by request.
