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.
