For over 60 years, these two foundations have worked side by side in Pasadena to support local non-profits. In June, the PCHF Board voted to dissolve as a private foundation and continue its mission as a component fund of the Pasadena Community Foundation (PCF).According to Board Chair, Tara Westman, “the PCHF Board saw that efficiencies could be achieved and long term grant making could grow through this new arrangement. PCF has staffed the PCHF for the past 18 months, and together we have done a lot of analysis and thinking about how best to ensure the perpetuity of the Foundation’s work.” PCHF’s assets of approximately $6.0 million the represents the largest single gift to the Pasadena Community Foundation in its history.In 1994 PCHF received $5 million, a 20% share of a trust that had been established in 1928 with 500 shares of IBM stock – at the time worth just over $12,000. This significant gift allowed PCHF to make an even greater impact in the community.Now, as a component fund of PCF, the PCHF will be able to take advantage of both cost savings and streamlined administration. Gloria Pitzer, PCHF’s Treasurer, said: “It became clear that working with PCF not only offered the opportunity to share knowledge in terms of how to better serve local child-health related non-profits, but also would cut costs significantly. In today’s difficult economic environment, small foundations can struggle to grow their assets in order to keep pace with both inflation and community need. We – the PCHF Board – wanted to make sure that this money was available to do good in our community forever. And working with PCF, who knows this community so well, will only further strengthen our ability to impact child health issues in Pasadena.”For more information, visit and 0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Community News HerbeautyStop Eating Read Meat (Before It’s Too Late)HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Lies You Should Stop Telling Yourself Right NowHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Strong Female TV Characters Who Deserve To Have A SpinoffHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyAmazing Sparks Of On-Screen Chemistry From The 90-sHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyFollow This Summer Most Popular Celeb Beauty TrendHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyHe Is Totally In Love With You If He Does These 7 ThingsHerbeautyHerbeauty Business News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

New suicide bereavement support group for Limerick

first_imgBilly Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash HUGG, Healing Untold Grief Groups, is launching its first dedicated Limerick peer support group for the suicide bereaved on the evening of Tuesday, 18th May.HUGG provides a free, safe and confidential environment where those bereaved by suicide can share their experiences and feelings, and receive and offer support to each other. All of HUGG’s peer support groups are led by people with lived experience, people who themselves have been bereaved by suicide.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up HUGG focuses on “postvention”, a specific form of intervention which is conducted after a suicide in recognition of the increased risk of suicidal ideation among the bereaved friends and family.Limerick is one of the first groups facilitated by HUGG to take place outside of Dublin, and the second one in Munster. Munster locals Greg Moran and Rose Hallissey participated in HUGG’s comprehensive facilitator training program earlier in the year.Both have lived experience of suicide, a requirement of becoming a HUGG facilitator. This ensures a better understanding and appreciation of the emotions and trauma group attendees may be going through.Reflecting on why he signed up to be a HUGG facilitator, Mr Moran stated, “On May 9th 2012  I suffered the loss of two family members by suicide. My twin brothers, Peter and Kevin died by suicide aged 28.“Learning to live with this grief resulted in acquiring much insight around healing trauma, and coping with loss. As a facilitator with HUGG, I hope to provide a space whereby each member can just ‘be with their grief’, connect with others through shared experiences, and allow their healing to begin.”Rose Hallissey lost her daughter Sarah to suicide and outlined her reasons for supporting HUGG, “I’ve spent a lot of my life since trying to get my children to where they are today because they are effected by her death. It’s been a tough journey but thankfully I have survived and I want to help others get to where I am now.”Commenting on the launch of the new group, Fiona Tuomey, Founder and CEO of HUGG, said, “We’re delighted to have such capable volunteers as Rose and Greg, to facilitate a support group in Limerick.“We identified Limerick as a location for one of our first official groups outside of Dublin due to the demand in the region. I know it will greatly benefit the local community here and I hope we can continue recruiting more facilitators in Munster to extend our services into further counties.” she added.The new group will meet online in accordance with COVID-19 restrictions but will meet in-person when it is permissible to do so.
