2021 Aftercare Workshops
The Living Legacy Foundation of Maryland (The LLF) Aftercare Team has decided to continue offering our workshops on a virtual platform into 2021. This decision has been made to minimize risk and protect our staff, partners, and community. We will continue to offer free virtual workshops to support those experiencing grief and loss until we feel safe to meet in person once again. Please check our listings below or follow The LLF on social media (linked at the bottom of this page) for information and updates on workshop offerings.
Please feel free to contact us with questions or concerns at GriefSupport@TheLLF.org.
The Aftercare Team strives to ensure that our donor and donor-in-spirit families, as well as the Maryland community, have access to grief resources and support. We offer educational and supportive grief workshops throughout the year, provide grief counseling, and maintain a website with a variety of grief resources throughout Maryland: Community Grief Resources and Support at www.cgras.org.
Are you ready to attend a workshop?
- Do you feel you would benefit from peer support?
- Are you comfortable hearing and sharing personal stories about loss?
If you answered "yes" to both of the above, then a workshop may be beneficial to you.
Please note that the workshops offered by The LLF are both educational and supportive in nature. While they provide a safe space for individuals to share certain experiences and feelings, if you are struggling with particularly difficult emotions and need help processing some of the more sensitive details of your loss, it is recommended that you schedule an individual counseling session prior to attending a workshop. If you have additional questions or are in need of grief support or resources, please reach out to a member of our Aftercare Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410.242.7000.
Workshops held at The LLF office are handicap accessible.
Please arrive up to 15 minutes early for events to get checked in.
*Indicates a particular workshop is reserved for The LLF donor and donor-in-spirit families.
The LLF office is located a short walk from the yellow line bus UMBC via Kaiser route (Kaiser Medical Center stop). For more information, please look at the MTA website.
"Where do I go from here?" Dealing with Sudden, Tragic, or Stigmatized Loss
Thursday, July 29, 2021 | 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Free Virtual Workshop via Zoom
Together with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), we will be offering the virtual grief workshop “Where Do I Go From Here?” This workshop is for people who have lost someone due to sudden or traumatic circumstances and/or circumstances that may cause feelings of stigma and/or personal guilt. If you are a griever that feels a lack of support from your friends, family, and/or community due to stigma surrounding substance use, suicide, homicide, HIV, accidents viewed as preventable, etc., we hope this workshop can provide a safe and supportive environment to learn about the unique nature of your grief and connect with others in a similar situation. This event is appropriate for ages 15+.
RSVP for "Where do I go from here?" by Sunday, July 25
