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 CGSS. 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. Our Summer 2014 support group sessions begin on May 12. Private counseling is also available. Help is just a phone call away - call (205) 870-8667 and let your healing begin.


The Board of Directors welcomes Lisa Sims Harrison who succeeds Carol MacMillan as Administrative Director at Community Grief Support Service.

The Board announced Carol’s retirement, effective December 31, 2013 after six years with CGSS.  Carol came out of retirement to lead the agency in 2008 and now looks forward to having more time with family and to travel. She will work with Lisa during the transition and then will chair the CGSS Advisory Council as a volunteer.
