The Hope Floats Mission
Hope Floats is a bereavement and educational center for adults, children, teens, and their families who are grieving, dealing with illness, or facing other life challenges. Our free support services bring hope and healing to those in need.
“Providing hope to grieving adults, children, teens and their families”
Our free, peer-led support groups help participants cope with their loss in healthy ways as they process their grief with others who walk a similar road.
Hope Floats provides a variety of groups—several for adults who have lost a loved one to suicide, overdose or addiction, partner-spouse loss, sibling loss for young adults, and for Dads who have lost a child. Mike's Club is our growing support group for children, teens, and their families, including parenting adults. Entire families gather in this setting, which is organized for sibling loss or for the death of a parent/caregiver. Children process their grief through activities, arts and crafts, and games with the help of trained support staff, therapists, and social workers.
The mission of our HEART training program is to raise awareness about grief through education and community outreach.
This encompasses trainings, workshops, and presentations for professionals, educators, and community members.
