New Hope Center for Grief Support is a Christian based bereavement outreach center that provides grief support services to adults, teens and children through groups, individual support, seminars and other resources. People of all faiths are encouraged and invited to participate. New Hope specializes in offering age and loss specific support to all who are grieving. If you attend one of our free support groups, you will, typically be placed in a group with others who have had a similar loss. If your child died, you will be with other parents who are learning to live with this overwhelming loss. If your spouse died, you will be with others in your age group who have also lost a spouse - young widows and widowers with others who are young and, oftentimes raising young children ; middle aged widows and widowers with others who are at this transitional time in their life and retirement aged widows and widowers with others who are at this later stage in life. In our eight week series we often also offer specific groups for parent loss, sibling loss, suicide loss, etc. A call to New Hope will provide you with an opportunity to talk to someone about your grief, and to learn about all of our services and other resources available. New Hope has developed an 8 week series called From Grief to New Hope that is offered in churches and funeral homes all over southeastern Michigan at various times throughout the year. The series begins with a live presentation from a grief specialist which provides information and education about the grief process. Following the presentation the participants attend age and loss specific small groups facilitated by trained facilitators ' many of which have experienced a similar loss. The From Grief to New Hope workshop is also offered in a half day seminar format at certain times of the year. We also offer several ongoing groups for adults and children which meet throughout the year for those who are dealing with specific losses. As a resource center, New Hope has an updated referral list of qualified counselors and lists of other groups available in southeastern Michigan. New Hope Center for Grief Support is a tax exempt, approved 501 ( c ) ( 3 ) organization and is funded primarily through private donations and fundraising events. New Hope receives no state or federal funding and does not charge a fee for any of its services to individuals. Our goal is to help each individual who seeks our services find HOPE and healing. We hope you'll allow us to help you.
