Mission:
In an atmosphere of dignity and respect for the grief process, The Respite helps people, regardless of socio-economic status, who have suffered a significant loss in any form to reclaim a healthy and productive life. We provide a safe haven, a supportive community, and take a holistic approach that offers a variety of healing modalities (mind, soul and body) to empower individuals and families. Our vision is to shift how grief is viewed in the world - moving from shame and isolation to unveiling (or mining) grief's transformative gifts. We welcome grief and provide hope for tomorrow.
Results:
The Respite proudly opened its doors this past September of 2011, and since has served many individuals coping with grief through support groups, workshops, therapeutic art classes, grief massage, virtual classes, and author events. We also held our first Hope & HeARTS Gala in March, which brought out many wonderful supporters. We are continuing to spread awareness of our services through news media such as radio, newspaper, and magazine articles that speak of the important work we have been bringing to the Charlotte community and surrounding areas.

I am extremely fortunate to have The Respite. After the death of my husband I was hopelessly lost. I struggled in support groups; being judged for my lack of religious beliefs. Finding The Respite was like finding an oasis in the middle of the desert. I walked through the doors of The Respite and ... more »
