Motherless Daughters support group begins meeting Monday, Jan. 31

IOWA CITY, Iowa — "Motherless Daughters," a support group designed for women who have lost their mother, will meet on Monday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. beginning Jan. 31. The meetings will be at the Women's Resource and Action Center, 130 North Madison St., across from the Iowa Memorial Union at the University of Iowa.

"The purpose of the group is to allow women to give voice to their concerns and needs as they adjust to life without a mother," says group facilitator Jacqueline Croat. "Women are encouraged to build support for each other, to discuss ways to handle common concerns and find creative ways to continue along a healing path."

Women of color are encouraged to attend. For more information, call (319) 335-1486.
