George K Stein, Director of Services Helping Hand Grief Support

Save The Date-Nov 17, 2018

Event Name: 2018 Reclaiming Life After Loss Due to Suicide

I am the cofounder and director of Helping Hand Grief Support of Medford, New Jersey.  Every year we partner with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to host the International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day conference.  This conference will provide survivors of a loved one’s loss due to suicide, with education, compassion and support.

The conference will be held at the Fellowship Alliance Chapel located at 199 Church Road, Medford, New Jersey, from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm on Saturday November 17th, 2018 at the facility nearest to Church Road.  After entering the building there will be signage to direct participants to the conference location.  A continental breakfast will be served along with beverages.

We are asking for your help in locating any of your customers who have been touched by a suicide, and who would benefit by this conference.  Additionally, since we are a full service grief organization, you may use us as a referral to others who have had any type of relationship loss due to the death of a loved one.  We have been providing weekly support meetings for the past twenty-five years.  Our meetings are held on every Monday evenings at the same location between 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm. Closed on major holidays.

There are no fees associated with this conference or our continuing weekly meetings.  For further information  we can be contacted at telephone: 609-953-7333 ext. 309 


Thank You for your consideration and attention,

George K Stein

A Resource for Bradley & Stow Funeral Home

The grief journey for an individual is, without question, a difficult time in one’s life. A caring person, who is genuinely concerned about your wellness, offering to come along side you during this journey can make a noticeable and positive difference.

The same can be true of organizations specializing in bereavement, with “compassion and understanding” as an inherent and continuously active part of their mission.

BSFH: “Bradley & Stow Funeral Home has become known in the community for service with “compassion and understanding” that brings comfort and hope to the families they serve.” (source: “About Us”)

HHGS: “Through the love and “compassion” of those who have also experienced the loss of someone loved, we strive towards “understanding” and reconciliation.” (source: “Our Mission”)

Bradley & Stow Funeral Home and Helping Hand Grief Support are two dedicated resources who share a common mission, thereby augmenting their available services to allow walking alongside the bereaved during their journey in the grief process.

Helping Hand Grief Support Offers Encouragement, Support and Comfort Monday – February 9, 2015

Wanda and George Stein of Cherry Hill, New Jersey, experienced one of the most painful situations anyone could go through: the loss of their child.

Nearly 26 years ago, 20-year-old John Stein, George and Wanda’s only child, passed away after being hit by a car while he was crossing the street.

“I think the only way you can deal with something like that is to really take one moment at a time,” George said in an interview on Seeking Solutions with Suzanne, a nationally broadcast information show.
