We're excited to get together again!

Our program transitioned from in-person to virtual in April of 2020 and we are incredibly grateful for the advanced technology that allowed us to continue serving children and families who are grieving. We reached many new families during this time throughout Texas and as far away as California! 

"I liked that I can talk about my feelings about my dad when I came to Journey of Hope. I really like virtual group because we can show our pets since they really help me when I talk about my dad."

-Thomas, a 3rd grader in our program

Our families, facilitators, and staff have truly missed the invaluable connection that comes with our traditional in-person programming and we are so excited to return to in-person groups! We will welcome families and facilitators to our in-person groups in Plano, Frisco, and Dallas starting the week of September 6th!

"I am counting on when we can go back in person so I can meet our new facilitators and create a bond with everyone. I want to tell all my friends in person how special they are and how much they help me when I'm sad.

-Stephanie, a 4th grader in our program


Sponsor a Child as We Get Together Again!

Resuming our traditional in-person program means additional expenses for supplies, and sometimes for dinner when no group provides the meal. Will you help cover these expenses by sponsoring a child for $50 a month? Thank you for your ongoing support!

"I felt like I needed to do something big in memory of my husband. Since his death, we had been living a life we never thought we would live; we might as well do something we never thought we could do! Now I felt like I could be "purposely grieving" by channeling my grief into something positive and bigger than myself. I ran the race with my husband's memory in my heart and his picture on my back."
