Share Meetings

Share meetings have changed for 2016. Please check the calendar to see where the meeting is located. Due to declining numbers during Share meetings, we only meet at the Genesis Heart Institute during June, September and December. The other months we will meet at a restaurant for a more casual meeting.

Members of Share-Quad Cities set the atmosphere at meetings. Meetings begin with brief introductions by each parent. The parents are encouraged to share with each other their experiences. A short program topic follows with member participation. Following the program topic, refreshments are given, allowing time to talk in small groups. A typical Share group lasts about 2 hours.

Monthly meetings are attended by one or both parents. Some parents have a relative or other significant support person who has been helping them through the grief process, and they are also welcome to attend.

Coming  to a meeting  may be painful, please give yourself more than one opportunity to learn about Share. The amount of information may be overwhelming and it can take more than one meeting to process. At each Share meeting, you will find people who are at different phases of the grief process. Consider the value of learning and growing through the insight and understanding of others. It is okay to cry there are tissues available for you.

Meeting Information:

Share Meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in the Lower Level of Genesis Heart Institute, 1236 E. Rusholme Dr. Davenport, IA
