"Each person's grief journey is unique as a fingerprint or a snowflake. ~ Earl Grollman
Our Mission & Vision
Hope Lives Here will be a place of comfort for adults in times of loss. Hope Lives Here will strive to help people make connections with others who are also struggling with loss by providing support in the form of outreach, peer to peer (one-on-one) support, groups (meditation groups, support groups, etc.)
Patty Inwood came up with the idea of Hope Lives Here after the loss of her own son, Luke, to suicide in April 2015. The Inwoods were immediately surrounded by an outpouring of love and support which eased their heartache and helped to move them forward. In the years to follow, Patty realized that not everyone had that same network and wanted to create a space in her community where others who were hurting from loss could come together and feel less alone.
The result was Hope Lives Here.
At Hope Lives Here we want to help you find the best way to heal your heart and make connections. Currently, we have four monthly support group meetings: Two General Loss Meetings, an Addiction Loss Meeting, and a meeting centered around Child Loss. Resources, including a lending library, are also available at our location in Holden. Social media is another way to receive our daily messages of hope and understanding. Facebook is where many of our clients find support, both on the public page and also within our Private Facebook Group. Alternative therapies such as trauma-based yoga are also available.
I shudder to think how far down the Rabbit Hole I would have fallen had it not been for Hope Lives Here. When you do fall, and you most likely will, it's really important to have great friends to help you up. Thank you, Hope Lives Here
One of the best things I ever did was walk in that door.
Thank you to everyone who makes this group possible, because for the first time, I do truly feel like I'm not alone.
