Your health and safety are always our top priority! 

Until further notice, our Cottage is closed and all in-person volunteer visits, support groups and school programs are temporarily suspended. However, we know that the community depends on us for support and a caring presence every day, and we’re committed to continuing to be there for you by offering an alternative set of services. Our staff and trained volunteers are available to offer phone support, online and community resources, as well as reading recommendations and other useful tools.  Throughout this time of uncertainty, we will continue to be a reliable and knowledgeable source of support for people dealing with serious illness and their caregivers, adults who are grieving the death of a loved one, parents of grieving children, as well as teachers, school counselors, and others in the community.
