This support group is for families with children ages kindergarten through 18 who have experienced the death of someone significant in their lives.
Activities are designed to help youth express themselves through
art, games and dramatic play, while adult caregivers learn
strategies to support their bereaved children and process their own grief.

Whether the death was sudden or anticipated, recent or many years ago,
Mourning Hope welcomes families to join our support group series,
which is offered at no cost to participants.
These groups enable both youth and their caregivers to develop
healthy coping skills and work through complex emotions
associated with the death. Most importantly, children and teens
will recognize they are not alone in their grief.
Programs are provided free of charge, but participants must pre-register.
Contact Alyssa Christensen, Grief Support Director, with questions.

Please consider sharing this information with family
and friends who may need grief support services.


Mourning Hope offers support for teens and families who have experienced the death of someone significant and would like support in the grieving process. There is no fee for the program.
