Community Resources

There are too many amazing options available in our communities in this incredible time of challenge and compassionate outreach to list them all, but here are a few we hope you will find helpful.  Many, if not all, of these resources are available for free, or at a reduced price or sliding scale.

Resources for Healthy Grieving:

Our Vision of Light community has asked for, and received, suggestions for resources for dealing with grief in these difficult times when so many people are experiencing loss, whether the loss of loved ones, losing a job, loss of security and familiarity - all very real and challenging things to process.  Please reach out for help if you need to.
