Have you experienced the death of a sibling?
Your sibling knows you for the entirety of your life. You have memories with them that you hold to your heart. You may feel lonely and lost, but we are here to give you support.
A licensed clinician supervises all programs and will assist you to determine your needs. You must be 18 years of age or older to participate in the services listed below.
For more information on Support Groups and Individual Adult Grief Support, contact us.
Individual grief services include meeting with a clinician for short-term, individual grief counseling, or with an extensively trained FVHH volunteer.
The work with a FVHH volunteer focuses on facilitating a grief companion relationship. They provide a listening and supportive ear while identifying additional resources to help during this difficult time. We recommend meeting with a volunteer if you have made progress in your grief process already but need ongoing support.
