Hope Lives Here will be a place of comfort for adults in times of loss. Hope Lives Here will strive to help people make connections with others who are also struggling with loss by providing support in the form of outreach, peer to peer (one-on-one) support, groups (meditation groups, support groups, etc.)
We've Got You
Losing someone you love is hard. Hope Lives Here was created out of the desire to create a community, a safe place, where adults could gather and share the story of their loved one. Every volunteer at HLH has experienced grief and there is comfort in sitting across the table from someone who knows exactly what you are going through; to be heard and understood. We hope you will join us.
Patty Inwood came up with the idea of Hope Lives Here after the loss of her own son, Luke, to suicide in April 2015. The Inwoods were immediately surrounded by an outpouring of love and support which eased their heartache and helped to move them forward. In the years to follow, Patty realized that not everyone had that same network and wanted to create a space in her community where others who were hurting from loss could come together and feel less alone. The result was Hope Lives Here.
At Hope Lives Here we want to help you find the best way to heal your heart and make connections. Currently, we have four monthly support group meetings: Two General Loss Meetings, an Addiction Loss Meeting, and a meeting centered around Child Loss. Resources, including a lending library, are also available at our location in Holden. Social media is another way to receive our daily messages of hope and understanding. Facebook is where many of our clients find support, both on the public page and also within our Private Facebook Group. Alternative therapies such as trauma-based yoga are also available.
