Bereavement Support Volunteers

The Mission of Hope Bereavement Services is to provide support to individuals, families and children as they work through their grief process and find healing.

Bereavement volunteers have the opportunity to support community members grieving the death of a loved one.

Stepping Stones:
  • Volunteers attend a specific training to co-facilitate a children's group that works with families after a death of a love one. Two of these groups are scheduled two evenings a month and require a one-year commitment. In addition, there are 10 consecutive week overflow groups implemented as needed.
Bereavement Phone Support: 
  • Volunteers provide active listening and supportive skills to families and/or friends following the death of a loved one. These calls are made at two and six months after the death.
