Bereavement & Support Groups

Support Groups

Family Hospice and Palliative Care bereavement specialists offer support and counseling to those who have experienced loss, in one-to-one sessions and group settings. Often following the death of a loved one, caregivers, friends, and family members find it helpful to attend a support group. Family Hospice and Palliative Care recognizes the importance of supporting those who are grieving and offers a schedule of ongoing support groups. These groups are free of charge and open to anyone in the community.

Camp Healing Hearts

Each year, Family Hospice offers Camp Healing Hearts, a free one-day bereavement camp for kids aged 6 through 12, coping with the death of a loved one. Camp Healing Hearts features healing activities, including art, music, an educational obstacle course and more. 

Camp Healing Hearts is FREE thanks to generous funding provided in part by: the Pittsburgh Pirates Alumni Association, the Tippins Foundation, and the Episcopal Church Women of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Mt. Lebanon

Thank you to all of the campers who attended 2017 Camp Healing Hearts on June 17 at Carlow University!  Look for photos on our Facebook page!
