Support Groups We Host

Parents With Hope

Ponte Vedra Valley is hosting a support group for parents who are suffering from the devastating loss of an adult child.

Our goal for Parents With Hope is to provide a support system in an informal setting for parents who are facing each new day without their child. The group will be led by other parents in our community who have been forced to live with this unexpected loss and now feel the desire to reach out and provide contact with other grieving parents. It is the single desire of our group to provide a place of comfort and strength by sharing our stories, our pain and our laughter as well as our tears with others who can relate.

Sessions are planned for once a month, on the first Tuesday of each month at 6 pm.
