Founded as a hospice agency, Shepherd’s Cove is familiar with end-of-life issues. In that, we realize these issues do not end at death. Each loss leaves behind loved ones who face another difficult journey: grief.

No one should have to face that journey alone. The path of grief can be arduous for adults, much less for children. The stress of changes and feelings associated with a loss can put much strain on a family.

But there is hope.

With some practical tools, families can learn to care for themselves while they support each other and cope with grief in positive ways – ways that bring the family closer.

If you have lost someone dear to you, don’t try to walk through grief alone. To start, you can register your child and family for Family Camp HOPE on May 11. This one-day camp, facilitated by Shepherd’s Cove Grief Support services, helps area families learn to cope with a loss by introducing them to simple, practical “tools of expression.” Registration is free, but space is limited. Register or learn more here.
