Loss, Grief & Bereavement Services

Helping Loved Ones Through the Grieving Process

Holiday candles

The loss of a loved one is always a difficult experience, and no one should have to take the journey through grief alone. Our Bereavement Support Services connect those who have experienced the death of a loved with services and resources to help support them no matter where they are in the grieving process.

All of the services below are available to you at no cost.

Skilled Counseling

We offer individual appointments, on a short-term basis, to explore your loss experiences, offer assistance to help you cope with grief and address concerns surrounding your loss. If you need further support through longer term therapy, we can help with referrals.

Grief Support Groups

We offer ongoing opportunities to attend grief support groups. We hold our eight-week educational support groups in several different locations in South King, Pierce and Kitsap counties. Groups fill up quickly and we do require registration ahead of time to attend.

We also offer a bi-monthly support group in Silverdale. This group follows a traditional open format and provides participants the opportunity to receive support in a confidential peer-group setting. Meetings are held every second and fourth Wednesday at 1:30pm. Please call for more information.

Telephone Outreach

Counselors and volunteers who are trained in the issues of grief and loss are available to support you by telephone.


At the beginning of each year, we offer an opportunity to remember your loved ones in a community of others who are in grief at the Spring Brunch Memorial Celebration.

At the end of each year, in collaboration with other community bereavement services providers, we offer a seminar, Living with Grief Through the Holidays, that provides practical information and ideas about how to care for yourself and your family during the holidays and other times of meaning.

Both events will be held in two different locations; one in Pierce county and another in Kitsap county.

Community Referrals

If you are looking for support services outside of this area or need more than we can offer, we will assist you in getting connected.

Resources and Materials

Over the course of the first year of your grieving process, you may receive literature and information about grief and the grieving process as well as information and invitations for community support and events.

Donations and Charitable Contributions

Charitable contributions and memorial gifts help us train and support our highly skilled staff and volunteers who care for each hospice family during this difficult time. Donations also enable us to assist those who do not have insurance and who would otherwise be unable to afford care.

Please remember that every donation is appreciated, no matter the amount. Why? Because donations come from the heart and no one can put a monetary value on that!

Although these services are offered at no charge, we always accept donations.
