Resources and Help

Grief and loss can take hold in our lives suddenly leaving us wounded and struggling with overwhelming emotions. Experiences from an abortion, miscarriage, or stillbirth may lead to intense feelings of pain, depression, guilt, shame, anger and/or hopelessness at some point in our lives. The decision to seek support may not be an easy one, but when we choose to take the first step to heal, we won’t have to be alone on that journey.

If this is you or someone you love…
Compassion, unconditional acceptance, and grace can guide you as you claim victory and experience forgiveness in those areas of your life that have kept you in bondage to pain and regret. You can redefine and recreate a purposeful, meaningful life to help rekindle a desire to live and to thrive.

There is hope…
There are multiple options for help and support in our greater Sacramento area and nationwide. Please browse the following list for detailed contact information.
