Member Testimonial:

As a small business, we have no expertise in HR policies etc.  I find the site informative and an amazing resource and has saved our team here many, many hours.  I really appreciate the personal attention and exceptional customer service that Melissa provides. She helps guide us to and through next steps, makes recommendations and is a pleasure to speak with.  I have recommended you too many other firms and can’t emphasize enough the benefit of membership.

LOSS, GRIEF & GROWTH EDUCATION PROJECT INC.
The Loss, Grief & Growth Resource provides educators with information, strategies and resources to support students who have and who will experience loss and grief.  The basic assumption is that loss is a part of life, that grief is a normal and healthy adaptive response to loss, and that through grief children can grow in inner and outer strength..

This resource for teachers is available for Funeral Home members to take to their educational community.
