When someone you love dies, you may not know how to move ahead with your day-to-day life.

And that’s OK, because there are people who understand—and know how to help.

The Agrace Grief Support Center is a unique place where you can get help coping with grief when someone special to you has died.

For 40 years, Agrace has brought compassionate care to people facing life-limiting illnesses. We care for their families, too. We understand how loss affects life. And we believe everyone deserves to have support after a death so they can find hope and healing.


How could the Agrace Grief Support Center help me?

You (or your family) may be wrestling with anger, shock, loneliness, sadness, bitterness or worry. Agrace’s experienced, professional staff are here to guide you through complicated emotions. We help you share your experiences, find comfort and work toward healthy survivorship.

Who can use the Center?

You may use our services even if your loved one who died did not have hospice care. If we cannot meet your specific needs here, we offer referrals to therapists who may be able to provide the ongoing care you need.

Anyone is welcome to come to the Agrace Grief Support Center for guidance and support after loss. We serve both adults and children, so many of our spaces are designed to help kids feel comfortable.
