Help for grieving widows and widowers in the COVID-19 era

The next session of 10-week meetings starts Wednesday, July 1, and will be held via Zoom

Can there be anything worse than the pain and torment of the loss of one’s spouse or life partner? Unfortunately, the answer is yes: the loss of a loved one in the COVID-19 era.  Each of these individually can drive one to their knees; together they can be totally overwhelming.

Luckily, there is H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Evolve), which has been guiding widowed people through the horrors and challenges they face for more than 40 years with a program of year-long, weekly in-person group meetings. Since those are no longer practical in the COVID-19 era, H.O.P.E. is introducing its online group meeting format using Zoom technology. All it takes is a computer, laptop, tablet device or smartphone, and the desire to ease the pain and hopelessness.

The 10-week Marlton summer session starts Wednesday, July 1, at 1 p.m. To join, just call (856) 234-2200.
