The Collective for Hope combines the strength of its program brands and co-located services to lead response to loss, elevate the value of grief companionship, and promote healthy survivorship.

What makes The Collective for Hope’s programs different?

  • FREE grief and survivorship support services following a death of a friend or relative
  • Developmentally appropriate design and curriculum for children ages 3-18, young adults, and adults
  • Peer support format
  • Interpretation and other accommodations provided and encouraged
  • Commitment to diversity & inclusion
  • Groups are facilitated by trained volunteers (20+ hours) 
  • No hierarchy of grief/No grief comparisons 
  • We walk alongside. We do not try to “fix”
  • We also train facilitators to take the work into their own communities because we understand we are not a one-size-fits-all
  • Our entire staff has a loss story (or several) of their own. We truly get it and do this work because we don’t want anyone to have to go through it alone.
