            In the New York metropolitan area, and especially in the Bronx and lower Westchester, Calvary has established itself as a resource for grieving families.  We offer free bereavement support groups for adults, children, and teens, and referrals for additional support if necessary.  Our programs are available to anyone who has lost a loved one, whether that person was a patient at Calvary, or someone from the larger community whose death is attributable to illness, accident, or violence.  To learn more about Calvary’s bereavement support programs and how you can support its mission, go to www.calvaryhospital.org.
