Grief Support for Youth and Families
The death of a loved one can be especially difficult for children and teens who may not have the language to express their grief. We are here to provide support and resources to parents and guardians as well as to grieving youth. Support is available to anyone in our community and your family does not have to receive other hospice services to participate. Call us at (210) 908-9774 or email us for more information.
"How do I talk to my child about this?" is a question we often hear. We’re available by phone to help you feel more confident when talking to your child about serious illness, death, and grief.
Individual Counseling Sessions (virtual or in-person)
Grief counseling is available to children and teens by appointment. It is currently being conducted via Zoom video calls, or in-person at our San Antonio office. Please call (210) 908-9774 for more information.
In-Person Counseling Session (Outdoors)
In-person grief counseling is available to youth outdoors at a San Antonio local garden or park. If interested, please call (210) 908-9774 for more information.
