From Grieving To Healing

You Are Not Alone

What We Do

Solace Grief Support Society (SGSS) is a non-profit organization, centered in the Foothills County, Alberta and the surrounding area. We help individuals deal with personal loss and grieving by providing group, individual and family counselling free-of-charge. We also hold public education events and provide advocacy.

 

SGSS is guided by a volunteer Board of Directors and operated through donated funds from community organizations and individuals. We take online donations here, and issue tax receipts for all gifts over $20.
