In light of COVID-19 spreading among our communities, ALL IN-PERSON HAND SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS ARE CANCELLED until further notice. During this time, HAND remains dedicated to supporting families who've experienced a loss in any way possible. You still have options for support!

1. We are offering peer support services via phone and email. If you wish to be connected with a HAND peer support volunteer, please complete a peer support request form.
2. Some HAND chapters are piloting video-conferencing support groups, held at the usual support group meeting times. If you are interested in attending, please email meetings@handsupport.org.

We hope to resume our usual meeting schedule as soon as possible. Please check this website for updates. To discuss support options and for updates on support group meetings, please email meetings@handsupport.org and a HAND facilitator will contact you.
