8-Session Family Support Groups

Our 8-Session Support Groups are a great choice for families who are ready to dive a little deeper and make a bigger time and attendance commitment. In this curriculum-based program, the same families attend for all 8 sessions as they progress through a series of grief-related topics. Having the same people in your group fosters trust and comfort, thus promoting more significant progress and better outcomes. Youth and adults work with trained facilitators in separate age/developmentally-scaled small groups.

When: 8-session groups run 4 times per year, alternating between Mondays and Tuesdays. Click the registration button to see when the next groups are being held.

Where: In-person at 7811 Farnam Drive, Omaha, NE 68114

Time: approximately 6:15pm-7:45pm for 8 weeks in a row. Must plan to attend all 8 session. 

Open to youth ages 3-18 and their adult caregiver(s).

Teen Events & Camp Hope

Overnight retreats are an incredible opportunity for grieving teens to hang out with other teens who “get it.” Campers benefit from the restorative nature of the great outdoors and participate in a variety of activities such as horseback riding, drumming, hiking, photography, ropes courses and a campfire. All food and drinks for the weekend are provided.

 We also get together for fun events throughout the year, if we have enough interested teens! If you have a grieving teen who’d benefit from being around others who truly “get it”, please take a couple of moments to fill out the interest form below.

“Week after week, my daughter and I came back, and the support group was the best part of our week. I did my best to open up myself and my grief to the group, and in turn I felt myself growing. Over in the pre-teen group, my daughter was actually “having fun”. Let me say that again: My child had fun at a grief support group. She found a precious outlet to voice her grief and she met people her age who understood, and I’m so thankful for that. I have gained so much from this experience, and I think I understand now what moving forward looks like.”
