Youth Bereavement Support
Children are profoundly affected by the serious illness or loss of a family member or friend. They need healing opportunities to process that loss. Our
Hope Care for Kids program counselors can help support children and adolescents through play and art therapy, age-appropriate support groups, specialized workshops and home and office visits. We also offer equine-assisted therapy and supportive experiences through the healing power of nature. Most insurance plans are accepted and no one is turned away due to inability to pay.
