BackgroundAs the region’s cornerstone for grief support, Grief’s Journey (formerly Ted E. Bear Hollow) provides free peer support programs as well as training, education, and consultation in the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro area, rural southeast Nebraska, and rural southwest Iowa.
Research indicates that healthy coping leads to long-term successes for children, families, and communities. Our programs are designed to increase resilience and develop healthy coping skills in children, teens, and adults.
Brag LinesProgram participants report significant improvement in affect and behavior, increased hope, and perception of support and resilience.
We served over 1,900 program participants in 2017.
All of our grief support programs are offered at no charge.
People can come as often as they like, and we provide food as well as transportation and language assistance.
Pay it ForwardGrief’s Journey does not receive any federal or state support. We rely on private donations, special events, and volunteerism. In 2017, we used more than 300 volunteers. Most of them served as support group facilitators. Others helped with special events and prep for our programs.
Please consider giving us a gift of your time or resources. You’re providing compassion and hope for grieving children and families when you make a donation of any size. Memorials, honorariums, and sponsorships are fantastic opportunities to show support and leave a positive legacy.
