Your loss matters. Here's more about who we are if you need support and comfort.
HOPE offers its services to all. Our local chapter strives to have an understanding of customs & rites of a spectrum of faiths and belief systems, but this is ultimately guided by your individual needs and wishes. We are here for you in whatever way best eases your suffering.
For anyone suffering a loss
Couples, single mothers, grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles...loss of baby is felt by a whole family. Fathers may struggle in a unique way as they try to be strong for their partner while also grieving; we offer a Dads of HOPE meeting on the last Friday of each month, and our resources are available to you at any time.
Anyone affected by a loss is welcome to our resources and support.
Grief at the loss of a baby presents us with many difficult decisions we cannot possibly prepare for. There are no right or wrong choices, only hard choices. Our mission is to support you through these times with respect and compassion.
There is no obligation to attend a support circle, or to continue attending, or to attend regularly. It's up to you what fits your particular journey through this difficult time, from a conversation or a resource packet, to advocacy and memorializing of your little one. There is no cost or timeline. We're here when you are ready.
