Find Comfort and Healing Online

Please note this program is specifically designed for survivors grieving the death of a military loved one.

The TAPS online grief support groups are here for you wherever you are in the grief process — and wherever you are in the country or the world. The TAPS Online Community allows easy, yet meaningful, connections among survivors. Whether you want to share your story or just read how other survivors are sharing and coping, this online grief support community is a way for you to develop and strengthen your connections with your TAPS family from the comfort of your home.

As a gathering place for survivors, the TAPS Online Community hosts chat sessions for real-time conversations, message boards that provide space for questions and comments, and peer-based sharing groups to drive conversation and connection.
