You’re not alone. No matter what you’re going through,

God sees you and longs to go through it with you. We do too.

Our pain is often fraught with purpose. God salvages our grief, hurt and pain by bringing us closer to him and revealing more of his character in the process, uncomfortable as it may be. Check out our support groups below to find your next steps in your healing process. There is no cost to attend. Need to talk to someone right away? Call 330.655.8739 or email [email protected]. Please note that many groups take place at our Center for Care located in The Block (5374 Darrow Rd, Hudson).
