The Healing Process

 

Resources in Your Time of Need

Grief is a process. We have found that the only way out is through.  Jamie Sarche, our Director of Outreach and Aftercare, will do all she can to help you on this difficult journey. She can help you with the logistics necessary — changing titles to property, applying for veterans or other benefits, making a life insurance claim, and more.

Jamie will do all she can to hold your hand through the process and help you to feel a little less alone.

Local temples and synagogues may be able to provide you with information and/or counseling above what we have listed here. Jewish Family Services is an organization that can easily assist you with any counseling (listed below). This resource guide provides names, addresses, and phone numbers as a convenience to the families we serve. It is not Feldman Mortuary’s intention to recommend, suggest, or advise any individual or program to our families. Please contact a funeral director at Feldman Mortuary if you have any questions.
