FAQs

When did iCare start?
International Grief Institute was founded in 2017 with a mission to help organizations and individuals invest in community resilience. The iCare branch of grief support was launched in 2019.

What is the iCare philosophy?
iCare is founded on evidence-based modalities that tend to the emotional, physical and spiritual needs we all have after loss.

Who can start a Chapter?
Anyone who has experienced a first-degree loss can lead an iCare grief support chapter. You must be 3 years out from your loss and at least 30 years of age.

We recommend two leaders for every group.

What type of grief do iCare chapters support?
iCare chapters cover most loss types. Each group leader chooses their chapter’s loss language such as child loss, spousal loss, sibling loss, suicide, overdose, etc.

Where can a new Chapter be located?
You can start an iCare chapter in any community, but only one loss type per community is allowed.

Can someone from outside the community join my chapter?
Yes. People are free to join any chapter they wish.

Does it cost anything to start a new chapter?
Yes, it costs an annual fee of $99. That includes one starter kit (see below), free resources, chapter support, IGI listing, and more.

**Due to COVID-19, All Grief Support Groups are Virtual Online Until Further Notice.
