Set of weekly grief sharing meetings

Grief Share is a support group to support and encourage you through your grief journey. After the funeral, when the cards and flowers stop arriving, most people around you go back to their normal lives. But your grief persists and you feel alone. Often your friends and family want to help you, but don’t know how. That’s what Grief Share is all about. Our group is led by caring people who have experienced bereavement and managed to rebuild their lives. We understand how you feel as we have been in the same place. We will walk with you the long road through grief to healing and hope for the future. We will meet weekly at Highland Park Community Church, 5725 Highland Dr., Casper, beginning Tuesday, September 14 at 6:30 p.m. in the hall. 1327. There is a $20 fee for the book (scholarships available). For more information, please call Vickie Obermueller at 262-8024 or The Healing Place at 265-3977.

Due to COVID-19, there are no in-person suicide bereavement support groups at this time. However, there are Zoom support meetings on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month that are advertised and by invitation on JR’s Hunt; for Lifetime Facebook Support Page.

Resistance to open poverty

Poverty Resistance Food Pantry, 450 S. Wolcott, Casper restored social distancing at the pantry. The agency also limits the number of customers inside the pantry to six at a time.
