The volunteer will work with you for 16 months, providing a “listening ear” and identifying additional resources as needed during this difficult time – all at no charge to you.

GROUP PROGRAMS

The Fox Valley Hands of Hope M.A.L.E.S. support group was developed specifically for men who are grieving the loss of a loved one, providing a forum where guys can “let go” and freely express their thoughts and feelings with other men who are experiencing the same challenges.

M.A.L.E.S. group sessions are facilitated by trained, experienced group leaders. This open (drop in) group meets the second Saturday of each month at 9 a.m. Coffee and doughnuts provided. For more information, call 630-232-2233 or email info@fvhh.net.

M.A.L.E.S. is sponsored by Moss Funeral Home
