Survivors of Suicide Loss Support Group May 20  6:00 PM

Welcome to Community for Hope

Our group was established in 2001, in response to a growing number of teen suicides in Oshkosh and the clear need for action to stem this alarming trend. While our initial focus was on teen suicide, our current focus includes all age groups.  We are a completely volunteer-based organization, and welcome and appreciate the help of any person or group who wishes to support our efforts. Also, join us on Facebook and Instagram for daily and weekly updates!!
