What are Community Bereavement Services?


“In every heart there is an inner room, where we can hold our greatest treasures and our deepest pain.”  -Marianne Williamson

Often when a sudden death occurs, we don’t know where to turn for emotional support.  Through the generosity of donors and special grants, we are able to offer grief and loss support to our community members.  First, we provide an assessment session to establish how we can best support your bereavement needs.  We may suggest a limited number of bereavement counseling sessions and/or a referral to one of our specialized small bereavement groups.  If you are having complicated grief and loss issues that would require a more therapeutic environment, we will refer you to clinicians in our community.

Services, Classes, and Groups we offer on an ongoing basis.

Ongoing Support Groups

We are “Stronger Together

Often, when we experience the death of a loved one, we don’t know where to turn for emotional support. Through our Hospice & Community Bereavement Programs, we can offer grief and loss support to community members of all ages.

Wings of Hope

Family Bereavement Camp

Wings of Hope Family Bereavement Camp is Hospice Services of Lake County’s annual free three-day camp for Lake County families with children 5 years and older that have experienced the death of a loved one.  Families enjoy activities designed for healing such as horse therapy, canine comfort, music, art and more.

Comprehensive Bereavement Skills Training

 The trainings are open to all community members who desire more knowledge, education and understanding of how to support those who are mourning. These discussions come from a collective of experiences and are rewarding.

School Outreach Programs

Our School outreach programs provide a safe space for children and teens to learn and express their feelings associated with grief and loss. 

Individual Counseling

Individuals can receive one-on-one counseling related to grief and loss.  Each session is specifically designed to help the individual process and determine further needs.
