Bri's Lodge / What Would Bri Do's mission is “WWBD helps individuals cope with loss, supports their healing, nurtures their physical and emotional well-being and brings hope for the future-No one should grieve alone."
A mission for healing
Backed by a strong Board of Directors and empowered with a mission to construct Bri’s Lodge. This will be a space where those who are grieving can find support and perspective, the organization will provide:
The industry of Grief Support is always present and will never change. The support for those grieving is a need that our community is crying for.
According to the Minnesota Department of Health in 2017 there were 44,361 deaths and if there are just 4 people that are grieving these losses 177,444 people are grieving this one loss. With the COVID-pandemic these numbers in Minnesota could be catastrophic bringing an even greater need for resources to help those that are grieving the loss of a loved one.
Bri’s Lodge would be a one of a kind grief resource in the state of Minnesota. Other resources in Central Minnesota are limited but include support groups, therapists, equine therapy, and events for specific types of loss.
What is Bri's Lodge
Bri’s Lodge will be a respite and guiding light in this complex and ever-changing grief journey. Nestled in Central Minnesota against a peaceful, natural backdrop, Bri’s Lodge will provide those who’ve experienced personal loss with lodging facilities, events, resources and the connections they need to move forward in their journey. It will give grieving individuals a soul-soothing place to feel understood and supported so they can better cope with their experience and carry hope in their hearts for a brighter future.
Together we can build this lodge!
