Bereaved Families of Ontario Southwest Region is a non-profit, mutual aid organization that started in 1984 to help support families who experienced the death of a child. Today, they provide support and programs for those who have lost a loved one at any age, in any circumstance. They also provide a safe place where members can talk about their loss, share their story, and express their grief. Through the self-help process, participants know they are not alone. They feel hopeful as they see how others have coped, and learn about grief as a normal response to loss. Participants find a comforting network of caring people building trust and relationships.
"This organization provided a light in our darkness after our san passed away in 1996. Amazing work and support I’d offered to people who have had a child die....and that work and support is guided by people who have experienced loss themselves. It is an invaluable resource for people in a time of profound grief."
