COVID-19 Updates

In the face of the COVID-19 outbreak, the Mourning Hope Grief Center is working to ensure the safety of our families, volunteers and staff.

Out of consideration and concern for the health of our attendees, we have made the decision to postpone our annual fundraising breakfast, Hope in the Morning, which was scheduled for April 22, 2020. A new date will be announced as soon as possible.

Mourning Hope will also suspend all in-person support groups and appointments effective March 14. Beginning Monday, March 30, we will be providing free online grief support groups for adults and youth ages 10+. For our elementary-aged participants, we'll be sending a weekly activity via email to complete at home.

We have no doubt that the need for Mourning Hope's programs and services is going to escalate. Amid personal loss and significant disruptions to daily life, bereaved children, teens and adults are having to alter their daily lives. Although physical distancing doesn't translate to a complete lack of connection, there is no substitute for in-person hugs and shared tears. And we know that social distancing is triggering grief reactions for people who had moved toward healing on their grief journeys.

Mourning Hope is needed now, more than ever, as we mitigate this public health crisis. As a human service organization, we have an obligation to provide continuity of care to our families. We want to support you during these challenging times. If you, or someone you know, needs support after the death of someone significant, please call 402.488.8989 or email
