We are a bereavement and educational center for individuals and families who are grieving or facing other life challenges. Our mission is to help people cope with loss, support their healing, and nurture their physical and emotional well-being.
Support services are free of charge and open to the community. Our approach is to support people in a safe environment where they are able to share and process their grief with others facing similar losses. Our facilitators are trained volunteers who often have experienced a loss similar to the group members.
Our day-long support retreats enable people with similar losses to gather together. These retreats include yoga, meditation, group discussion and mini-body treatments. We also host a variety of guest speakers throughout the year.
About Hope Floats Healing & Wellness Center
In 2008 Ken and Denise Brack created Hope Floats in memory of their son Michael, who passed in 2002. Having learned how such a loss is devastating and isolating, they wanted to offer support and resources to others going through a similar crisis. Today the center offers a variety of free support groups, support retreats and complementary wellness classes, body treatments and workshops.
