The emotional upheaval these trying times can cause is sometimes so overwhelming that even the support of friends and family may not help relieve the amount of sadness and grief you feel.

At Millard Family Chapels, Inc. we offer the following aftercare grief sessions: 

»  Monthly Support Group
The third Monday of each month, from 11:30AM - 12:30PM, we are offering a Grief Counseling Support Group with the help of Compassus. This group meets at the West Point Executive Center, next-door to our Houser-Millard funeral home in Jefferson City, MO.
