Your healing after a loss is important to us at Hutchens Funeral Homes, and we want to make sure we’re here for you long after the service is over.

Life Changes is a social support program we sponsor that seeks to help widows and widowers adjust to the loss of their loved one. Often, after a loss, you might feel alone, like no one understands how you feel. The Life Changes program provides a way to meet others who know exactly what you’re experiencing.

Becoming a member of this support system is easy, and there are no membership fees. All you need to do is make a reservation at least five days prior to the next scheduled meeting. Each gathering includes a meal, a speaker, entertainment, and prize drawings.

All are welcome, but RSVP’s must be made to our Program Coordinator Susan Taylor at (314) 606-3505.
