Our mission is to offer comfort, encouragement, and healing to those who have suffered the loss of a loved one, Embrace serves C.T. families by making phone calls, mailing sympathy cards, serving a family meal after the funeral, and publishing a quarterly bulletin, “The Embrace.”

During the Christmas season, a memorial tree is decorated with ornaments in memory of loved ones. On the second Sunday of December, Embrace presents a tribute to those who lost a loved one that year entitled, “A Christmas Night to Remember.”
