We welcome you to attend our Counseling program’s ongoing,
drop-in support groups:

Community Connection

Join JFCS for conversations on Zoom: It is a space for anyone in the community to connect with others and share what’s on their mind. This group meets many Fridays at 10am on Zoom. No registration required.

Grief Connection

Grief affects every part of our lives and can be a lonely road to travel. Join us for our monthly grief-processing group for adults. In our virtual sessions, we will have the opportunity to share our own experiences with grief, connect with others, and learn strategies for moving through loss. This group meets on Zoom the first Friday of every month. No registration required. Click here to learn more.
