Who We Are
If you are visiting this website, chances are someone important/special to you has died or you are preparing for a death. We are a supportive community who understands grief. We have all been there. We hope you will find that these pages are a comfort and a place to remember those we love, as well as a resource for information about BFO Kingston Region’s programs and services. We believe that when bereaved families come together to support one another, they can influence the growth of a healing and caring community.

As soon as we can we will return to in-person groups but for June—BFO-Kingston will continue to offer our group support through video conferencing and support individuals with phone conversations during this difficult time.
