Walla Walla—Community members throughout the region are invited to join a ten-week grief support class offered this winter by the Walla Walla Community Hospice (WWCH.) The class will begin Wednesday, January 10, 2024, and run through March 13, 2023. It is offered in person at WWCH and virtually. Attendees need not be family members of current or former hospice patients; there is no charge to the participants. All forms of grief support offered through Walla Walla Community Hospice are free.

The hybrid weekly support group will be held on Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. It will be facilitated by WWCH grief support specialists utilizing the book, “Understanding Your Grief” by Dr. Alan Wolfelt. The winter group will close to new members after the second meeting or when registration is filled.
