Learn How to Recover From Loss and Grief

At One to Another in Oregon City, OR, we offer different opportunities for people to heal and embrace life again. We hold many events and classes that you can take part in.

We offer two grief classes: “Grief Release” and “Beyond Grief Release.” Through these, we aim to guide people through the healing process and teach them how to appreciate the beauty of life again

Aside from these, One to Another also offers:

  • Friend to Friend Programs
  • Moving Forward Support Groups
  • Journeys of Hope Seminar Series


Our organization hopes to provide an environment of growth, healing, and unlimited potential to its members. This way, people will still find hope and encouragement even though they’re going through tough times.

Grief Release Classes

Why Should You Take Grief Release?

From the blur of pain, confusion, and bewilderment, Grief Release brings life back into focus. It encourages unhurried healing and provides practical step-by-step support on the road to restoration.

  • Lost a loved one through death or divorce

  • Lost their business or home
  • Lost their health
