Grief is a universal life experience that we all share. However, the way in which we experience it is unique to each person and each relationship lost. From husbands, wives, and children to parents, grandparents, siblings and friends – loss affects everyone.

As a peer support organization, we understand both the pain of loss and the need for age and loss specific support programs. It is our mission to reach grieving people more effectively and with greater impact through changing despair to hope, heartbreak to healing, and transforming grief into life changing new beginnings.

children/family

New Hope’s “Circle of Hope” programs provide compassionate support for grieving families. Recognizing that when someone we love dies; it affects our entire family. Unfortunately, grieving children are often “invisible mourners.” This happens because a parent must navigate their own grief journey in addition to helping their child through grief. Our programs provide a family-centered approach to grief support by investing in children, supporting parents, and strengthening the family.

1. Family Fridays

Designed for families who have experienced a loss, it’s a safe place to connect, learn, and share. To help meet other families, dinner is provided, along with break-out sessions, discussions, and activities to help identify tools to help navigate the grief journey.
