Hope in the Morning

Mourning Hope exists because every child deserves the opportunity to grieve in a supportive and understanding environment. Because the death of a family member brings financial instability, along with other life-altering changes, our services are available at no cost to participants, and no family is ever turned away. Receiving no government funding or insurance reimbursement, we rely solely on private donations from individuals, businesses, service clubs and foundations.

To continue offering this kind of help for grieving youth in Lincoln and surrounding communities, we need your support. On April 26, 2018, Mourning Hope will host our annual “Hope in the Morning” fundraiser with special guest speaker Allison Gilbert. This invitation-only event brings together business and philanthropic leaders, elected officials, corporate partners, community members and grief professionals for an educational and motivational breakfast.

Please consider joining our amazing annual corporate partners by sponsoring the 2018 event.
