Groups

The Jewish Federation of Howard County provides periodic therapeutic support groups on a range of topics. Support Groups may be focus on bereavement, dealing with COVID-19, “sandwich generation” issues, abuse addiction, and other topics.

The Federation offers bereavement support groups that launch in the spring, winter, and fall. Each group is structured with an eight-week curriculum where clients will be able to share about their own grief and learn how to cope with the impact of the death of a loved one.

All support groups are free and open to the community, but initial intake required. For an example of the schedule of the support groups, see the chart below.
