Support Groups Calendar

Our ongoing, drop-in groups:

Community Connection

Join JFCS for weekly 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. Zoom link provided below.

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. Zoom link provided below. Click here to learn more.

Cancer Support Group

Community is important. Cancer is lonely. Jewish Family & Child Service has combined these two truths to create this support group open to anyone with a cancer diagnosis. This group meets on Zoom the second Wednesday of every month. Zoom link provided below. Click here to learn more.
