The PRHPCS was graciously presented with a donation of $1000 on behalf of the Smith Group Holdings Family barbecue. To accept this generous donation was Marg Laux and Linda Currie of PRHPCS and Cole Smith and Jody Wester of Smith Group Holdings.
PRHPCS would like to express there extreme gratitude for the Smith Group Holdings Support.
In May of this year, we were able to meet with many of our volunteers and brainstorm about our communities’ needs. One of the needs identified was a place to meet and discuss the challenges of grieving and healing following a loss.
We are offering an
Evening Bereavement Group, an opportunity to share thoughts and feelings and
needs with others traveling a similar path.
Discussions can vary from the process of dying, the physical changes, emotional, the “hole in your life”, losses prior to death, paperwork just to mention a few. Subjects can, and will, vary to meet the needs of everyone.
Bereavement is a journey, one as unique as every
person. There is no right or wrong way, no specific start or end time.
Everyone is welcome to join the group whether you are
coming from a recent, a past, or an evolving loss event in your life. This is an opportunity to meet with a facilitator for an informal discussion
with others traveling a similar path.
PRHPCS WELCOMES YOU TO OUR EVENING BEREAVEMENT GROUP

PRHPCS was thrilled that, in June, the Duchess School Youth Philanthropy Class included PRHPCS in their list of 4 community programs they could be interested in supporting. The class funding comes from CFSEA – Community foundation of South-eastern Alberta.
The Duchess School students – Kayleigh, Madison, Payton, Shelby & Syndey with Teacher Jill Goodheart met with 3 members from PRHPCS to hear our mandate, history, the services we provide and our organizations greatest need.
After hearing from the 4 groups, students selected 2 groups, one being PRHPCS, because it isn’t well know and their services are very important. “Services are available to people before and after passing and they are all volunteers,’ said one of the students.
Presentation took the form of a luncheon with recipients and the Duchess and Brooks Philanthropy Classes with 2 of our members present to accept their donation.
It is exciting to see CFSEA work with the school students to allow them to learn of community programs and their needs plus make the difficult decision of which group/s to pick for the monies available. Thanks to CFSEA as well.
