Hope Healing Hearts: Support Groups

We offer grief support groups to everyone in the community at no charge, thanks to generous donations. Support groups are hosted in-person and online by Hope’s professional bereavement counselors.

Music Therapy

Music therapy is a creative opportunity to express emotions within an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation. No musical background or experience is necessary to enjoy its many benefits, including:

  • Positive changes in mood
  • Relaxation, peace, and comfort
  • Anxiety and stress reduction
  • Social interaction with caregivers and family members
  • Memory recall, reminiscence, and satisfaction with life

Art Therapy

During art therapy, people of all ages can express themselves creatively while dealing with stress, grief, and loss. Common goals of art therapy include finding relaxation and stress relief, or it can be a tool for sharing memories and exploring coping skills. These goals may be achieved through:

  • Self-Expressive Art – based on current emotions, moods, and thoughts
  • Art Studio – a healing outlet for stress and life transitions
  • Legacy Projects – gift-making, inter-generational art projects, memory books, or albums

VALOR Program: Honoring Veterans

Hope Honor Guard volunteers offer personalized recognition ceremonies for our nation’s heroes as well as help with Veterans History Project submissions. Staff members also provide professional support for PTSD and related spiritual and emotional needs.

Donations to this important program help all veterans receive the specialized care they deserve.

Volunteer Pet Visitors

Pets have a special way of showing unconditional love and uplifting spirits. Hope’s volunteer pets are reviewed before acceptance into the program; they bring smiles and joy to everyone they meet.

Help for People with Pets

During a serious illness, the physical and financial responsibilities of pet care can be challenging. Fortunately, Hope offers support to keep hospice patients and their beloved pets together. We provide pet supplies, veterinary care, and help with adoptions thanks to community donations and grants.
