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.
Virtual Quilt Square Workshop
Saturday, Feb. 6, 2021 | 1-3 p.m.
Free Virtual Workshop
Please join us for a virtual quilt square workshop in preparation for our annual Ceremony of Remembrance, held virtually this year in April. We will share ideas and instructions on how to create a personalized memorial quilt square, either physical or virtual. You'll learn about the history of the donor memorial quilts and see some examples of past quilts for inspiration. Please feel free to have craft materials (pictures, fabric, magazines, glue, etc.) available during the workshop if you’d like to create a physical memorial quilt square. We will invite families to share their physical or virtual quilt square for a special presentation during April's ceremony. All ages are welcome.
The LLF's donor memorial quilts honor those who have given the gifts of life and hope. It is a way for donor families and friends to celebrate and memorialize their loved one while sharing their legacy with the community.
*Memorial quilt squares will only be submitted electronically this year. We encourage families to save any physical squares for pinning at the next Ceremony of Remembrance.*
