Local Grief Support

Every person must cope with loss of a loved on his or her own terms.

The emotional upheaval these trying times can cause is sometimes so overwhelming that even the support of friends and family may not help relieve the amount of sadness and grief you feel. 

There are many different grief support groups and resources available in the Fargo-Moorhead area and surrounding communities.  Below is a list of different groups including when they are held and contact information for the groups.  Due to the variety of groups and meeting times, we recommend that you call to confirm when the different groups meet.  We hope that you find healing and comfort in a way that feels right for you.
