'Motherless Daughters' support group offered at Women's Center
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- "Motherless Daughters," a support group designed
for women who have lost their mothers, will be offered on Monday evenings,
June 5 to July 24 from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
at the Women's Resource and Action Center at 130 N. Madison St.
"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."
Rebuilding after the loss of a mother is challenging work. "Motherless
Daughters" offers support and fosters community for women in that process.
