Allegiance Hospice offers free support groups for children ages 5-7, 8-12 and 13-17, every Tuesday, now through November 19, 2013. Children do not have to be loved ones of hospice patients. Groups are free and open to the community. Children will benefit from sharing their grief and starting the healing process with children their own age. Groups take place at the Immanuel Lutheran Church, 1505 W. Michigan Ave, Jackson. Groups meet every Tuesday for 10 weeks, September 17 through November 19, from 6:30-8 p.m. Please call Patrice Marner at (517) 841-6971 to register or for questions.
