The Door of Hope
What is the Door of Hope?
The Door of Hope is an ecumenical grief and loss community outreach program. It is an eight year established grief and loss service with proven validity in the Door County community. The Door of Hope has developed support groups, seminars and seasonal presentations as resources to serve you in the recovery and healing process of grief and loss. The coordinators of the Door of Hope understand the family dynamics of grief and loss and the diverse family interactions that can occur in the recovery process. Many people know very little about what to expect when a loved one dies. They may feel fearful, lonely and unsure of whether their feelings are normal. The Door of Hope can help you learn, share and be supported by others going through the same process. You may also meet with Chaplain Joan for individual and/or family support, care and counseling in her home office.
Support group meetings at :
Immanuel Lutheran Church, 7953 Hy. 57, Baileys Harbor WI,- 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Second Monday of each month
And at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, Sturgeon Bay, WI - 4:00 p.m.-5:30 p.m., Second Tuesday of each month.
