Calvert Hospice to offer grief Support Group, “Journey’s” starting in September

News Release, Calvert Hospice

Prince Frederick, MD – Calvert Hospice is pleased to offer Journeys, a support group for families. Journeys focuses on helping families heal after the loss of a loved one. Children meet once a week for 8 weeks to participate in age-appropriate support groups that will help them process their grief through creative activities, connect with other children who have similar  experiences, and learn healthy ways to grieve their loss. Adult family members will also meet periodically during the eight weeks to learn how to help their children grieve in healthy ways while gaining valuable coping skills for dealing with their own grief. 

The group will meet on Wednesdays from September 18 – November 6, 2019 from 6:00 – 7:30 pm at Trinity United Methodist Church in Prince Frederick. The cost is $25 per child with a $75 maximum for families with multiple children. Scholarships are available, so please do not let a lack of funds prevent you from seeking support for your family’s grief. Pre-registration is required. Applications can be downloaded at:

For questions or more information, please contact Jess Foster, MS, CCLS, Children & Teen Bereavement Coordinator for Calvert Hospice at or (410) 535-0892, ext. 2206.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
