HOPE for Bereaved understands that when someone close to you dies, it changes your life. Those suffering from grief need the support of others who share that experience.
HOPE For Bereaved is dedicated to helping grieving children, teens and adults by providing core services (support groups, monthly newsletter and counseling) at no charge. Founded in 1978, HOPE is an independent nonprofit community organization. Our purpose is to offer support, understanding, coping strategies, friendship and hope to the bereaved, as well as education, consultation and resources for their families, friends, employers, school/daycare staff, co-workers and invested professionals. The help given by HOPE can add greatly to the physical and mental well-being of the bereaved and therefore to their place of employment and to the community.
What We Do
We provide our core services free of charge to anyone experiencing the death of someone close to them. The journey from grief to hope can begin with any of our counseling services provided in groups or one-on-one.
HOPE for Bereaved currently offers 12 monthly support groups with each addressing a different type of experience. Some groups include widows and widowers, children, parents, survivors of a loved one completing suicide and LGBT. HOPE for Bereaved group sessions attempt to ensure no grief goes unresolved.
We staff a Help Line (315-475-HOPE), publish a monthly newsletter and present community education programs to stay closely connected with those in need – always free of charge. Families, friends, businesses and health care professionals turn to HOPE for Bereaved for training, guidance and resources. Our services and resources are used locally, nationally and internationally.
HOPE for Bereaved is a 501-C(3) organization. We not receive any annual public funding outside of monetary gifts, fundraisers and fees from books or workshops.
