Our Community Grief Services fund allows us to provide grief support and counseling to all members of our community. This program is free for anyone who needs us, regardless of whether they had a family member on our end-of-life service. This means that anyone who has suffered a loss is welcome to seek counseling services in a group or individual setting. On average per year, 65% of our grief clients have no prior relationship with Providence Hospice Sonoma County.
The program is offered in both Spanish and English and includes a children’s grief program which serves kids ages 5-17 process their grief. We are committed to providing this service to our community although we receive no reimbursement for this work. Funds for this program come from community donations and grants.
