Grief & Loss Resource Committee

The Grief and Loss Resources Committee helps people and families experience a healthy grief response by providing community education, and professional development, and through identifying and addressing service and/or resource gaps.  The Committee operates under the umbrella of Daya Counselling Centre.  Membership on the committee is from a cross-section of educational, religious, cultural, business and other groups that have an interest in or provide bereavement services.
