Grief Support

We offer a safe place to find hope and healing with personalized grief support.


When you are grieving the loss of a loved one, you need your Community more than ever. Community Home Health & Hospice offers a safe place to find hope and healing with personalized, free support open to everyone in the community not just those touched by hospice.

Anyone who has lost a loved one through an accident, violence, suicide, natural causes or military activity may participate. All support services are free of charge and facilitated by staff and volunteers with specialized grief training.

We provide grief support groups in Cowlitz County and Clark County as well as Camp Cedars, a youth summer camp. For more information contact or 360.703.0300.

Adult Support

At the adult grief support group, friendly, caring people participate in supporting each other through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Participants share as much or as little of their story as they want–and others listen without judgment. Adults may drop in on a couple of sessions to see if a group is right for them. Preregistration is required.
