Support Groups & Remembrance Services

Tabitha is proud to offer Grief Support Groups throughout the year as a service to family members and friends experiencing the recent death of a loved one. The meetings promote healthy conversation between a Tabitha team member specifically trained in grief support and a small group of individuals going through a common experience. The purpose of Tabitha’s grief support groups is to equip participants with the tools and resources needed to reinvest in life.

Contact us for more information on Tabitha’s grief groups throughout central and southeast Nebraska.

We would also like to extend an invitation to you and your family to attend one of the Remembrance Services that we hold throughout the year to honor your loved one.


Online grief and support groups are open to anyone in the community and are a great way to find support while sharing common experiences and coping tips in the safety and comfort of your home. Your loved one did not have to be with Tabitha.

Participation is free, please register here.
