The Healing Center Programs
In-house, The Healing Center provides support groups for pre-school through adult age groups, individual counseling, special services for survivors of suicide, summer day-camp activities, retreats, a holiday party, a Ceremony of Remembrance, monthly potlucks, and an environment of safety and encouragement.
In the community, The Healing Center has established partnerships with other agencies and is part of a broad referral network that addresses loss, grief and related challenges. In local schools we conduct support groups, staff training and presentations about loss, grief and healing, which also helps reach more families in need of services.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
In 2011, we began a Men's Grief Support group spefically for widowers, to compliment our co-ed Early and Transition Groups.
In 2012, we began a Survivors of Suicide group, the only one in King County exclusive to widows and widowers.
Donors are welcome to sponsor a grieving family in need of counseling and support, underwrite a school program, or provide general support to The Healing Center.
