Community can bring many meanings. For us, it means partnerships with local organizations that can help us build the foundation of ours. These relationships are important to us for many reasons but the main one is that we want to make sure we are doing our part. How can we support them? How do we help them grow? As a Grief Center we want to provide only the best resources to the families we serve, and making sure our partners programs thrive is crucial. We hope that you will witness this when you see us out in the community; doing our part to help at their events, raising awareness for their cause, and providing support to the people they serve. We are new to this community, and we know we must work extra hard to reach the same level of these amazing organizations. We hope you will give us the chance because we believe that TOGETHER we truly CAN make a difference.
This recent testimonial from Ali DeCamillis, Program Director for Gilda’s Club Twin Cities sums it up beautifully:
There isn’t a person in this world who won’t be affected by loss at some time in their life. To have a place, a resource, a community to connect with as you explore the new terrain that is grief, is an absolute necessity – Brighter Days Grief Center is joining our community as this very resource. Gilda’s Club Twin Cities looks forward to collaboration with Brighter Days to enrich the tremendous resources in the Twin Cities as well as to enhance support for those impacted by loss and grief.
Thank you Ali!
