About Us

Hopeful Hearts provides a safe and caring environment for grieving children and their families to come together and safely explore and share their experiences, feelings, and memories of the person who has died.

Children grouped by age participate in activities led by trained volunteers.

Parents and guardians meet in small groups to share their experiences and support each other in helping their children cope with the death.
