Welcome to Bereaved Families of Ontario - Durham Region

This organization provides support programs to bereaved parents, young adults and teens.  These programs offer support where bereaved individuals can learn to live with their grief, decrease their sense of isolation and help adapt to everyday living.

What you can expect at your first visit

Newly bereaved parents are often apprehensive to contact us as they do not know what to expect. When you first contact us by phone, Jane Carter, our Executive Director will put you at ease, assuring you that we can help. She may ask a few questions, but she will especially listen to you. Should you decide to visit in our office, she will further explain what to expect; it is important to note that our services are free to all members.
