RIEF’S JOURNEY

To provide excellent and compassionate grief support services, education, and professional training so that no one has to grieve alone.

T

OGETHER, HOPE GROWS. As the region’s cornerstone for grief support, Grief’s Journey provides free peer support programs as well as professional training, education and consultation. We serve the greater Omaha/Council Bluffs metro area, rural southeast Nebraska, and rural southwest Iowa. Research indicates that unresolved grief correlates to issues such as poor school and work performance and emotional and behavioral concerns, whereas healthy coping leads to long-term successes for children, families and communities. Since 2001, Grief’s Journey has been providing free peer support groups, day camps and overnight retreats to increase resilience and develop healthy coping skills in children, teens and adults. Assessments, which measure effect, behavior, and perception of support and progress, reveal positive outcomes for program participants. On average, participants report a 35-point improvement on a 100-point scale. 96 percent of caregivers completing the final evaluation state they would refer this program to other families.
