As a peer support organization, we understand both the pain of loss and the need for age and loss specific support programs. It is our mission to reach grieving people more effectively and with greater impact through changing despair to hope, heartbreak to healing, and transforming grief into life changing new beginnings.
Vision Our vision as a bereavement resource center for Southeast Michigan is to see those who’ve come through our program create a safe, understanding community for others in grief and help change the way our culture responds to grief and loss. We do this through two methods: 1. Direct grief support services 2. Community Outreach, Training, and Practical Resources
Values As a Christian organization, New Hope Center for Grief Support is committed to serving all members of the community with love, courage, and humility. Our program is open to everyone, regardless of beliefs. Our primary purpose is to help people process their grief in a safe environment while staff and volunteers reflect the characteristics of Christ through our actions and service. Key scripture: 2 Corinthians 1:4
Guiding Principles Our Program is built on Five Pillars: 1. Age and loss specific Peer Support 2. Grief Education built to help understand the uniqueness of each person’s grief journey 3. Connection to others who’ve experienced loss, including social outings and events 4. Empowerment of volunteer leaders to guide others along the grief journey 5. Service opportunities that bring meaning and purpose after loss
