Grief Support
Support Services
The Christopher J. Morrissey Foundation is pleased to inform you that we sponsor a monthly support group for Mothers who have lost a child. Mothers who have lost a child (regardless of age or circumstance) are invited to gather on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:30 - 8:00 PM at Manasquan Lighting, 126 Main Street, Manasquan, NJ 08736. We are meeting in accordance with Covid-19 guidelines. There is no charge for these support groups. The group has been formed to operate as a safe, non-judgmental gathering place for Moms to share and listen.

Meetings are currently facilitated by Martha Kalakutok and Debbie Gallucci. Martha and Debbie are certified bereavement counselors. They are caring listeners and have a significant amount of experience with grief counseling. If you are interested in attending a support group, please contact Martha or Debbie. They can be reached at mkalakutok65@yahoo.com or 201-321-5761 for Martha and dgallucci2607@gmail.com or 732-986-6187 for Debbie. If you feel the need to reach out for any reason, even just to say “Hello,” please feel free to contact either of them.

"These books have helped my journey in learning to manage and cope with the loss of Christopher. Although nothing can or ever will take away that ever present pain, sometimes others' experiences helps ease it, if even for a moment."
