Why Meetup for Valley Grievers and OUR HOUSE?
Hosting Meetups is a great way for OUR HOUSE to quickly and easily identify local grievers.
The group provides an opportunity for grievers to get support in a less formal and non-committal way, but also become aware of OUR HOUSE, its programs, services, and events.
Having an established Meetup group is an inexpensive way to build local brand awareness and promote OUR HOUSE services in a very specific area, to a very targeted group of people…Meetup promotes newly formed groups through email campaigns, and they expose relevant groups to new members looking for specific topics or who live/work near groups, etc.
There is a real need for grief support in the area, as there are more than 1.6K Google searches a month, from people in the Valley, related to grief support and recovery.
