Bereavement Support

Grieve together.

There’s a place to turn where you don’t have to feel alone in your grief. Take a look at our variety of free programs for youth, adults, and families that inspire hope for a new future through community and companionship.

Monthly Support Groups

We often recommend that new families get started by attending one of our Monthly Support Group sessions. This group is open for families to attend at any time, so it is a great way to get a “taste” for our programs without a big commitment. During this group session, youth and adults work with trained facilitators in separate age/developmental groups. A light breakfast is provided. (Open to adults and youth ages 3-18.)

8-Session Support Groups

For families ready for a bigger commitment, our 8-Session Support Groups are a great choice. In this core program, the same families attend for all 8 sessions as we progress through a series of grief-related topics. Having the same people in your group provides comfort and security. Following a potluck meal, youth and adults work with trained facilitators in separate age/developmental groups. Series begin throughout the year, so check our calendar or registration page for the most current information. (Open to adults and youth ages 3-18.)

Family Days

These afternoons are filled with crafts and activities to honor and remember special people who have died. Families work together with volunteers in this fun, light-hearted setting with seasonal themes such as Dia de los Muertos and Tinsel & Tears. Snacks are provided. (Open to adults and youth ages 3-18.)

Camp Hope Teen Retreats

This weekend overnight camp is a special program for teens who have attended our programs with their families. Campers enjoy hanging out with other teens and participating in a variety of activities such as horseback riding, drumming, hiking, photography, and a campfire. All food and drinks for the weekend are provided.

In order to attend camp, teens must have attended our other programs with their parents/caregivers. In order to register, please call 402.502.2773 and speak with either Ellie or Cathy.

Space is limited to 20 teens and fills up quickly, so be sure to register in advance!

Looking for Serious Illness/Injury Support?

Whether someone has cancer, ALS, dementia, or any other serious illness or injury, it can take a serious toll on the entire family. We offer a free grief support group designed specifically for families in these situations.

“It was good to see my children remembering their father and making things that made them happy. We still have the flower pot that we made sitting on our dining room table. They also loved writing a message to him on the balloon and releasing it.”
