Here are some featured testimonials of how your donations make a difference.


It feels so good to walk into a room and know that everyone there understands what you’re going through because they are going through it, too.


Folks in the organization have been very accessible and took care to follow up with me directly and consistently. They were very thoughtful and kind


When I felt that nobody understood what I was feeling after we lost our son, I found a group of very compassionate, understanding, and sensitive people who really cared to listen to our story.


Hope After Loss helps to keep me grounded, to speak of my daughter with people who get it, and at times to inspire others that are on the same path.


Hope After Loss has been critical in my grieving/healing process. The meetings have allowed me to share my feelings with people who understand firsthand what my husband and I are going through. I have also been connected with wonderful people who are willing to share their stories and help me realize I am not alone in my grief. People often say things that I have either thought or said myself, which is comforting because it makes me feel less “crazy” and alone. Despite the circumstances, I’m thankful for the bonds I have made through this heartbreak.


I walked into a room full of strangers, but walked out with new friends and a sense of belonging, and pride- both of which I had not felt in such a long time.


Thank you so much for your donation for the cremation of our son. Words cannot express how thankful we are for your help in our time of grief. From the bottom of our broken hearts, we appreciate your gratitude.


It is the most amazing feeling to walk into a support group and feel your heart lift because you are finally in the one place where you can feel “sane” – where you can feel understood, where you can relate to other women who have had the similar pain of loss, and where nobody will judge you.
