Are you grieving the death of someone you cherished? Overwhelmed by everything? Dreading the future? No one should have to experience this alone. Family and friends eventually return to their own lives, leaving you alone just as the shock of your loss becomes a painful reality.

Community Grief Support is here to walk the grief journey with you. Whatever your loss, please know that YOU are not alone!

Since 1996, thousands have found hope and healing at CGS.

This is what three recent loss-survivors had to say:
"It has helped me out of the fog I was in and I am beginning to feel like myself again. Life saving."
"It has been wonderful support in my most serious hour of need. Very happy I chose to participate!"
"It saved my life. I was sinking in depression and didn't know how bad my life was after my loss. Hard to imagine where I'd be if I hadn't come."

All of our services are free. Private counseling is also available. Help is just a phone call away - call 205-870-8667 and let your healing begin. We truly are "Finding Hope Together."

Special Angel Greeting Cards Available

"Out of the Darkness"

All occasion cards featuring a painting by Kendall Callaway Boggs

(Specify Blank or Inside Message)

"Angels around us, angels beside us, angels within us.
Angels are watching over you when times are good or stressed.
Their wings wrap gently around you whispering you are loved and blessed."

About the Artist:

Kendall Callaway Boggs is originally from Dothan, Alabama. She graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a degree in English, but in her own words, she always wanted to paint! She lives in Atlanta and Birmingham where she is a working artist.
Kendall says that the imagery for "Out of the Darkness" comes from "being lifted up from the darkness by the many angels who are there to support those who are suffering."
Kendall donated the original painting to decorate the waiting area at Community Grief Support's office.

Cards come in sets of 10 cards for $15.00 per set, plus $2.00 shipping and handling.
