Provides funding for grief support materials for individuals in South Carolina who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Special attention has been given to providing educational resources to school guidance counselors as well as children, teens and their parents. We also offer educational materials to support Veterans dealing with end of life and their caregivers.
We recognize that children grieve in many different ways. They want support from their peers and to know that there are others with similar challenges. Camp Hands of Hope was created to address their loss in a safe, caring environment where families can express their feelings and connect with others going through similar experiences. Camps occur in various locations several times a year for youth ages 5-18 and their families who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Contact us for more information.
