Mount Laurel, NJ – Samaritan’s Center for Grief Support is unveiling a new virtual support group for 2021 – Parenting After the Death of a Partner.

Beginning Saturday, February 27, this free, 6-week group provides guidance and support to parents of young children and teens who may have experienced the loss of a spouse, partner or significant other.

Each session runs for 90 minutes and offers supportive information about coping, communication and compassion for self and others, while addressing the unique challenges a single parent may face as they grieve the loss of their partner while continuing to be a support system and an understanding, loving parent to their children.
