DMV Bereavement Support

We hope this list of bereavement resources for local support within the Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia areas will be helpful as you start your healing process.  Feel free to contact us by emailing hello@aaliyahinaction.org or DM us on Instagram @aaliyahinaction if you have any questions or, if you feel the time comes, ever want to be involved in our work in reaching and supporting families.

While you may not be ready for quite some time, we at least want you to have a list of local support groups for when/if you're ready.
