Children's Grief Connection has provided Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camps free of charge to grieving families since 2001.

Children's Grief Connection serves families who are devastated by the death of a loved one. Families who struggle with feelings of fear, regret and disconnection. Their isolation is broken by joining with other traumatized families who are experiencing the same heartache. Together in the safe and compassionate setting of Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camps, families make deep connections that provide support and understanding. Isolation is replaced with connection. 

Grief Companions

As a grief companion you can help grieving children and families by spreading awareness of Children’s Grief Connection programs and services. We welcome volunteers for our weekend camps, or as participants in our annual fundraising events, including our largest event, The Frunge.

Grieving Communities

When grief touches a community, a school, or a business, Children’s Grief Connection can help. In consultation with our staff of grief experts, we provide your grieving community with programs, resources, consultation, training, or education.

"The help and assistance we received before the anniversary was amazing.  And the program we planned together for that day was beyond our expectations.  We can’t thank Children’s Grief Connection enough.”

– Lakeview School District Planning Member

"I felt helpless until I found your program. My daughter and her family were so sad, and didn’t know where to turn.”
