Dear Survivor of Suicide,
We would like to invite you to participate in a research project on suicide bereavement. We understand that suicide bereavement is a difficult journey and that it is unique to everyone who goes through it. In order to find what is most helpful to survivors in coping with their loss, we have developed a series of questions related to what services you may have received immediately or soon after your loss.
The questions also relate to your emotional health following your loss. It is our hope to learn what is and is not most helpful to suicide survivors, and what impact the timing of services received had on your emotional and physical health and wellbeing. The study will involve taking an online survey available at this link here. There, you will find more details of the project, the survey, contact information for the researcher (Dr. Regina T. P. Aguirre), and will be asked if you would like to participate. We appreciate your time and consideration.
Great news! Front Porch Coalition has been invited to participate in the Northern Hills Federal Credit Union Community Challenge. This is a great opportunity for our organization to earn a donation from Northern Hills Federal, especially now that we have recently expanded services into the Northern Hills. But we’ll need your help to get the biggest donation possible.
What is the Community Challenge?
The goal is to save people in our communities $1,000,000 in loan interest through the rest of the year.
When someone refinances or consolidates their loan, the interest savings will count towards the goal of $1,000,000. Once the goal is reached, Northern Hills Federal will donate $7,000 to five local charities and you decide which charity receives the largest donation. The charity that receives the most votes in the poll at MyCUSaves.org will receive $3,000, the second place charity will receive $2,000, the third place charity will receive $1,000, and the fourth and fifth place charities will receive $500 each. You can also vote after refinancing a loan with Northern Hills Federal Credit Union.
Help us get the $3,000 donation by voting for Front Porch Coalition! For more details on the Community Challenge and to vote for us, visit MyCUSaves.org.
We are volunteers - survivors ourselves of a loss to suicide as well as community caregivers - who have come together to offer support, guidance, comfort, and assistance to those who have lost a loved one to suicide. Our services are free. To be contacted by an advocacy team member from Rapid City, click here.
As with many organizations, the need for volunteers is great. Our organization is currently in need of volunteers to help with the programs and services that we provide. If you would like to volunteer to help our organization, please contact us or click here to send us a message. Someone will contact you to discuss your time and availability to volunteer.
