NAVIGATING FORWARD FROM ADVERSITY
Networking, Peers, Guidance
This group is a network of men and women who are experiencing significant life changes brought about through bereavement, divorce, and other life-changing events.
Participants are offered support, networking, sponsoring, and friendship.
In this group, there is a strong sense of connection, belonging, even humor through the tears. Information and resources are also available. Most importantly, there is a break in the isolation that significant life events bring and a place to be accepted “as you are.” This is a group where “what is said here, stays here.”
Consider visiting us and participating on Tuesdays at 7. For more information, call the COA 781-275-6825.
