Parents Living with Loss - Monthly Meeting

Parents Living with Loss is a bereavement group that meets monthly and is open to all who mourn the loss of a child—regardless of the age of the child at the time of death, the years since the loss occurred, or the funeral home that was used.

The group welcomes visitors each month under the gentle guidance of two mothers who lost their children to tragic circumstances.

Family CenterMeetings are held at the Cedar Memorial Family Center & Library, located at 4200 First Avenue NE, Cedar Rapids, IA 52402. After entering Cedar Memorial, take the first right (see map below) and drive around to the back of the Family Center for ample parking and ground level entry.
