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. Please register in advance for Family Fridays, either by clicking on Family Friday events in our Calendar, or by calling the office at (248) 348-0115

When: Family Fridays are hosted once per month, typically on the last Friday of the month. Please see the Calendar page for details about future Family Fridays.

Where: New Hope Center for Grief Support Office – 133 W. Main St. Suite 113 Northville, MI 48167

2. New Hope Kids Camp

A free children’s grief camp for children ages 5 – 14 who have lost a loved one. The camp provides a time to meet others who have experienced a loss and to learn positive coping skills from the animals at Maybury Farm.

2. “From Grief to New Hope” Workshop

This twice yearly eight-week workshop is available to anyone who is grieving a death. Each session includes a speaker who shares their own experiences and journey through the grieving process. As a part of the workshop, grievers are placed into small groups according to their loss (i.e. spouse, parent, child, etc.) and given the opportunity to share their feelings and challenges with others. Participants find this workshop to be an instrumental turning point in changing their lives in positive ways, including: new friends, improving family relationships, and learning better coping mechanisms.

When: September 19 – November 24

Eight consecutive* Monday evenings from 6:45 pm – 8:30 p.m.
