No matter when, how, or who you lost, we provide an environment and resources to help you in your grief journey. Our programs and services range from one-to-one support sessions to 8-week support groups and are based on the peer-to-peer support model in which individuals with similar experiences share their stories, provide support, and inspire hope.
We are a community who has the courage to share and explore grief, and to be a beacon of hope for the future.
We travel the road together. We help the healing begin.
Our Impact In 2018
It took a long time for me to be ready for help, but when I was, BFO-Toronto was there for me. The people and stories helped me find a healthy perspective and taught me how to cope with my new life.
The BFO Spousal Loss Group provides a gay positive space where I can process, share and learn from the experiences of my “grief buddies”.
There were laughs, tears, new perspectives. The peer-to-peer support method really helped. I’ve even made some friends in grief.
