Bereaved Families of Ontario - YORK REGION

Why EVERY Donation Matters!

We are a fully inclusive, safe space for anyone who is experiencing grief after the loss of a loved one.

Here at BFOYR - we are committed to keeping all of our grief healing  support services FREE of charge - eliminating all barriers to timely, grief healing peer support when needed!

How Do We Do This?

1) We Eliminate Barriers to Support:  We ensure all grief support programs are barrier free - this means we offer supports in-person, via phone and/or via Zoom which eliminates geographic, travel, financial, physical and social barriers to our supports.

2) Our Volunteers - Many of our volunteers are trained BFOYR Grief Facilitators and lead various grief healing support groups.  Other Volunteers support our events or help with administrative tasks in our office.  Volunteers truly are a very valued and appreciated part of our team here at BFOYR!!

3) Giving Back - Most impactful, is the generosity of those who offered a financial donation after receiving our support;  learning how to navigate their own personal journey of loss through barrier inclusion to BFOYR grief healing support.
