Help With Grief
Morris-Baker has a dedicated aftercare representative who will connect you to resources in our community. For more information on this, please feel free to contact us.
Regular Grief Support Gatherings
We sponsor gatherings facilitated by Michael Lester on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month at the Memorial Park Community Center. These gatherings are free and open to the public. Click here for more information.
Morris-Baker is also known for bringing nationally recognized grief experts to the community and opening these events to the public for free as a public service. Our next seminar will be held in Fall, 2017.
Morris-Baker is proud to support the efforts of the many excellent professional caregivers and religious leaders in our community by providing access to resources they need such as nationally recognized experts who offer training and new techniques for helping professionals assist families with grief.
Monthly Widow/Widower Gatherings
Morris-Baker provides ongoing gatherings for those who have lost a spouse. These gatherings are an opportunity for members of our community to find strength in each other and support others who have lost a spouse. Call 423-282-1521
Camp Courage Sponsorship
Morris-Baker proudly sponsors Camp Courage, a free camp held each summer and designed to help children in kindergarten through eighth grade cope with the death of someone close to them. Professional grief counselors lead a day of activities to teach children how to work through their feelings. The counselors include social workers and spiritual counselors who have experience working with children in hospice, school settings and individual counseling.
Morris-Baker sponsors an annual Holiday Shopping Trip and also holds an annual candlelight service of remembrance at our chapel in December.
