WHAT WE DO:
Bringing hope and healing after workplace tragedy
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for another amazing family forum. I wanted you to know that I appreciate all the support that I have received over the years. I truly feel like I have a new family and a new outlook on life. I feel the love and I feel the caring from so many and I am able to share in giving the same to others, something that I could never have done before I came to Threads of Life. Today I look back on my life from the first day I attended the family forum — I could never have imagined the impact it would have on my life and how it would change the person I was at the time.” ~ Tammy, an injured worker
Peer support groups pilot this fall
When families find Threads of Life, they are so relieved to meet others who understand what they’re going through, they often ask if there is a local group in their own community. Soon, the answer to that question may be ‘yes’ as Threads of Life pilot tests its newest family support program. This fall, we plan to offer peer support programs in two communities. These six-week discussion groups will be led by trained Volunteer Family Guides and will give participants a chance to share experiences and learn healthy coping skills. >> More information >>
Family family forums
Family Forums offer families affected by a workplace tragedy the opportunity to come together to share, network and, ultimately, heal. Through the generosity of our donors and supporters, and with proceeds from the annual Steps for Life fundraising, we are able to offer four immediate family members accommodations, meals and registration to attend a regional family forum. Further information on the upcoming Prairie, and Central family forums, including how to request to attend, can be found here.
