Carpinteria, Calif. - Community leader Marybeth Carty is surrounded by family and friends who have suffered the loss of a loved one in carpinteria.

"Suffering from the loss of children youth or navigating really complex and life threatening illness … with their beloved elders … they’re just too raw to talk about it themselves," said Carty.

"And they’ve been a lot more challenges with mental health people are grieving differently and they’re expressing their need for support," said Carty.

The community will get a chance to show their support during the organization’s Light Shines Luncheon on Thursday.

“I think that’s really fitting at the luncheon. It’s called the Light Shines ahead because in a lot of darkness there is still some light and you just gotta reach out and accept it," said keynote speaker Jessica Clark of the Light Shines Luncheon.

Organizes at the event hope community members will come out to learn more about the services offered at the Carpinteria organization.

“All our services are free of charge to our community and so part of it is to let people know that these resources are available to them," said Caldwell.

This event will have a special focus on remembering loved ones who have passed away and their impact on our lives.

"We know it's a part of life," said Carty.
