A free, on-going grief support group is available to all Dare County residents who have experienced the loss of a loved one. 

Participants can benefit by sharing their stories and learning a variety of grief processing techniques and coping skills in a supportive environment with others who can truly relate to their experiences. 

Sessions are facilitated by Rosie Rankin and Shirley Parker, both Licensed Professional Counselors. 

Meetings are on the 2nd & 4th Mondays of each month from 7:00 pm-8:30 pm at the Baum Senior Center located at 300 Mustian Ave, Kill Devil Hills. 

Grief Support Group is made possible through funding from North Banks Rotary Club.
