What if someone could give you tools and resources that would make you the top choice for grieving families to turn to for their end of life needs? You would want to know about them, wouldn’t you?

As concerned professionals, we recognize that you are constantly in search of better ways to serve your families, while at the same time helping your bottom line.

As no stranger to the grieving process, why would you turn to a website like ours to further your understanding of grief? Besides the many services we offer that your organization can take advantage of, we provide a multidisciplinary exposure to grief from many sides, and from many causes.

We provide you with the best and most comprehensive tools and resources to serve your clients, as well as yourselves. People have many choices when they select whom they will turn to for end-of-life services. Connecting with our vast network of services gives you a competitive advantage in your industry. We offer tremendous benefits to help increase your services, as well as your bottom line. Click here and we will send you the details of the numerous ways we can help you when you participate in our Compassion Cooperative.

Recognizing that as funeral industry professionals, you are called upon daily to provide hope and comfort in times of loss, we provide you and your client’s free copies of Grief Passages, our free book of poems and essays.

You may download Grief Passages from the link below, as a complimentary service of National Grief Support Services. We also make bound volumes available through bookstores and on our website, for $14.95 per copy.

However, as a special service to your industry, professionals can make donations for quantities, personalized with your funeral home message, for as little as $8.95 a copy. Think of the value, as people are touched and comforted by your thoughtful gift, not to mention the positive public relations benefits you will receive, as people share their books with friends, family and colleagues who are experiencing loss. The book also makes an excellent premium gift at conferences and community events. Furthermore, proceeds from this book help support our charity. Please consult your tax specialist for advice on taking your donations as a charitable tax write-off. Click here and we will send you details on ordering.

Remembrance Place, which offers dynamic virtual memorials that our organization helps them to create, is another benefit you can offer to surviving family members and friends. These enhanced memorials allow people to channel their grief creatively as they look back fondly upon the person they have lost. Remembrances employ words, pictures, sounds and even video inserted by the creator of the page, a truly moving tribute, beyond what can be found elsewhere. They can even include photos of their loved ones grave, as well. And when your families create Remembrances on our site, we provide financial remuneration to you for assisting with our outreach to those experiencing loss.

These Remembrances can also be offered to your families, as gifts from your home or cemetery, that can be personalized, carrying not only your “stamp” on the Remembrance page but a link to your services via your website if you have one, or some other means. Inquire about how to set up an account to have these special gifts for your families tied to a donation from your funeral home or cemetery, through our Compassion Cooperative. Or just to provide a referral to our services, as we can to yours by listing you in our Grief Resources section.

Other features of GriefSupportServices.org are meant to benefit you individually as a funeral industry professional. Our communities are changing in their cultural makeup and practices. Unfortunately, the causes of grief are becoming more numerous and complex. And as the professional you are, you realize that keeping in touch with that changing community can be difficult, but is a long-term necessity.

We offer you the chance to supplement your everyday experience to prepare yourself for whatever comes around the corner. We offer a variety of topics for reading, study or discussion among your peers or professionals of other backgrounds, all sharing the goal to make the depths of the grief experience, so natural a response to loss, as comfortable and transitory as possible.

From our Professional Edition of the E-zine “Grief Matters” to the seminars we offer for hands-on practitioners and volunteers, GriefSupportServices.org is dedicated to strengthening the giving community as well as those in grief, who derive sustenance and strength from us. Take advantage of our many free, handy and time-saving resources for professionals.
