Now partnered with nearly 50 schools across the Fox Valley region, Project Hope is a collaboration between FVHH and school staff to identify student loss-related needs and to implement individual and/or group support. Sessions are held within the school day on a weekly basis – mitigating the need for busy families to coordinate travel to and from grief support sessions.

Project Hope 8-Week Groups bring trained clinicians into your school to facilitate weekly group sessions using our evidence-based grief support curriculum.

Project Hope Individual Counseling pairs students with our clinical staff to provide one-on-one support, either virtually or in person, during the school day.

Benefits of school-based support through Project Hope:

  • Provides accessibility within a familiar environment
  • Helps bereaved students form connections and support one another
  • Normalizes the grief process
  • Provides an outlet for emotional needs – assisting participating students throughout their academic day

Collaboration between FVHH’s bereavement team and school staff encourages a positive connection between emotional and academic performance.
