Mission Statement

LOSS (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) Community Services exists to be an instillation of hope to those bereaved by suicide.

Description

LOSS (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors) Community Services is a survivor-led peer support organization.

Trained volunteers - many of whom are survivors of a suicide loss - provide immediate assistance to the newly bereaved to help them cope with the trauma of their loss.

LOSS trained volunteers can also meet with survivors in the weeks and months to come. Suicide grief can be different from other types of losses. Often suicide survivors feel isolated - like no one understands their grief. Connecting with someone who has a similar lived experience can be encouraging and provide a sense of "normalcy" in a very difficult, uncomfortable journey.

LOSS provides follow-up contact with survivors by sending cards, free resource materials and providing connections to local services and support groups in the Franklin County community. There are many other opportunities to serve. Visit our website to register for an upcoming Information Session.

LOSS also hosts Remembrance Events and Support Groups
