New Hope for Widows & Widowers offers a refreshing time of encouragement through our spring retreat. We offer a safe place to rest and be cared for, to share common stories and learn together. Here you can find emotional and spiritual help, with practical advice to assist you on your grief journey. We will also provide limited one-on-one support on request. Children aged 6 to 10 have their own grief support program with an experienced counsellor from the Vernon school district.
The retreat begins Friday evening with an introduction to New Hope, with a guest speaker, music, and ice cream social. Saturday includes whole-group sessions, workshops, and break-out small groups where participants share their stories of bereavement. Lunch is provided, as well as refreshment breaks throughout the day.
Space is limited, so register early. Registration by April 1st, 2015 saves you $15.00.

New Hope is an organization committed to encouraging and helping those who have lost a spouse to death. It is our belief that those who have walked the journey of grief are able to understand and care in a special way for those who are new to grief.
We would like to walk beside you as you take the 'next step' in your grief journey. Grieving is hard work, but it is also a very natural and normal process.
Just as you are a very special and unique individual,you will express your grief in a unique and personal way. New Hope exists to support you in understanding the journey, and taking care of yourself as you choose healthy responses to your deep loss.
At New Hope you'll meet others who understand the pain of mourning the death of a spouse, and you will know that you are not alone.
Contact us today to let us know how we can support you.
