Grief & Bereavement, Peer-to-Peer Group | Enlightened Cafe | Ventnor City

May 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Grief & Bereavement

Too much of the world knows grief, however, not enough know how to heal from it. Grief and bereavement can consume a person’s life and bring them downhill if that person is not capable or willing to cope in a healthy manner. It is very important to know that healing can begin with just a little bit of willingness. Being open-minded to sharing those feelings of anger, guilt, depression, and hopelessness with another person could be the very thing that saves your life. Especially if it is a peer who has also experienced a loss in their lives.

For those who have experience a significant loss in their life, this is an 8 week group session for emotional and spiritual support.

There are no steps in this program – it is a contemplative approach to surviving loss, within your own time and space. The group will be facilitated with a Pastoral Care Team.

As we do welcome walk-ins, we do encourage attendees to sign up and attend the full 8 weeks to bring a sense of community and togetherness within the group. The evening support group

is based on sufficient enrollment.  To register, call (609) 270-4443.

Enlightened Cafe

Enlightened Cafe is an all-organic, non GMO restaurant with a holistic mindset. Working under the Hansen Foundation, Enlightened Cafe is a non-profit organization supporting the Foundation’s mission.

What is the mission?

The Hansen Foundation’s overall purpose is to raise funds for philanthropic purposes. Particularly, we aim to help those recovering from addiction by assisting those in need to access treatment and provide sober living.

The Hansen Foundation owns Serenity Houses, long-term recovery residences in Atlantic County, New Jersey. The Serenity House staff treats all residents as individuals – each with unique lives. More importantly, they provide them with the tools and skills they need to maintain productive lives in recovery.

Who We Are

The Hansen Foundation, without a doubt, embraces RECOVERY. Especially for those who suffer from substance use disorders, their families and friends.  More than Sober Living, our Serenity Houses and Serenity Estates help addicts access treatment, promote healthy and sustainable life choices and reunite families.

Accordingly, our Hope Farm and Community Education Programs introduce a holistic approach to wellness and productive living.  Hansen Foundation raises funds for Resident Scholarships and to supplement needs for our life-saving endeavors.

How does this tie into Enlightened Cafe?

All of the profits made at Enlightened Cafe go directly back into the Foundation to support the funds for Resident Scholarships and supplemental needs.
