We are BEYOND excited to be opening up this resource center to the Fox Valley.
Hope's House was officially incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit in August of 2018. We are working everyday to get all the pieces together or this AMAZING center for you. There is such a need in the Fox Valley area for full-time grief support, not just for adults, but for kids too.
Hope's House will be a FREE resource to the community. It will start out with weekly group nights in November 2018. Kids age 7-18 are welcome to attend. The night will start with welcoming therapy dogs and then break into smaller groups. We work through coping skills, self confidence, and art therapy.
Down the road the long term plan is to have staff of councilors, and therapists FREE of charge to our families. There will be a culinary therapy program, as well as a parents program, and a few other unconventional "loss" groups.
We hope to be a full-time resource to the community. If we do not have what you need, we will differently refer you to a source that matches your needs.
