Out of Darkness Community Walks

 Our team walks each year in the AFSP Out of Darkness Community Walk that benefits The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's North Florida Chapter 

We Provide Family Support

 Support  Groups and One-on-One Support for Children and Adults who have lost a  loved one to Suicide.  We provide a safe, confidential and supportive  environment for people to share as much or as little as they choose to.   Talking helps us heal.  We are not a Crisis Center.  We are not trained  counselors or therapists.  We just have good listening skills, strong  shoulders and strong arms for hugs.  We are here for you.

Guardian Angels

We Will Never Forget

We Will Never Forget

 They  have become our Guardian Angels and we look up to them.  Not a day goes  by that we don't need them to watch over us as we go through challenges in life without them here.

We Will Never Forget

 We will strive to keep the memories of our loved ones alive.  We hope to take each other back to remember the beautiful life they lived and how much our loved ones had to offer us.

We Need Each Other

We Will Never Forget

We Need Each Other

 No one understands our pain and the struggle to keep moving on.  Suicide triples the pain of any other loss.  We cannot take the pain away.  We just help each other live with it.  Talking about it helps us heal.
