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 had a child loss, suicide, overdose, partner-spouse loss, and sibling and parent loss. Mike's Club is our support group for children, teens, and their families who are dealing with the death of a parent/caregiver or a sibling.
We offer separate groups for children, teens, and parenting adults coping with death-related loss of a parent, caregiver, or sibling. The children process their grief through creative activities, arts and crafts, and games, with the help of our trained support staff. Parents and caregivers meet to discuss common issues, concerns, and ways to help their children cope. Mike's Club is a free program for children 5-18 years old and led by Hope Floats staff, clinicians and trained volunteer facilitators.
