You are not alone. Join Mourning Hope, the LOSS Team, and the American Federation for Suicide Prevention as we gather to remember and honor those who have died by suicide.

Holiday Hope is a program intended to support the bereaved during the often-difficult holiday season. To foster emotional healing and encourage individual creativity, local artists will partner with youth and teens who have experienced the death of someone significant in their lives. A separate group for adults will be offered as well.

When a parent or guardian has died, how does a child find the means to purchase and wrap a gift for their surviving caregiver? Many of the youth at Mourning Hope want to put a smile on their loved one’s face, and this event gives children the opportunity to choose gifts for their primary caregiver which brings great joy.
Children who have experienced the death of a parent/guardian and have attended any Mourning Hope grief support program are invited to participate in this special event designed just for them.
