Healing House

Healing House – Hope for Grieving Children is a non-profit agency focused on helping children ages 4-17 through grief issues in a group atmosphere. They do not provide counseling or therapy, but a safe place, where children who have experienced a death of a parent or sibling can express their thoughts and feelings in a variety of ways.

In support groups facilitated by volunteers, children learn to express their grief through interactive play, expressive art work and discussion groups with peers experiencing the same trauma.

Although Healing House is geared toward children, parents also find a place to talk and share feelings with others in their situation or spend quiet time reading on the enclosed porch or in the meditation garden. All services are available free of charge and run by trained volunteers.
