Geographic areas served: King, Snohomish and Pierce County, WA.

Programs: Group and Individual grief support for children, teens and adults, throughout the year and for as long as we are needed. Special SOS; Men''s Grief Group; and Adult Creative are offered once a month.

The website , is so valuable, death is a difficult subject to grasp at any age specially so for young children, so grateful for the insight you shared on grieving children.

I found the Healing Center after my wife died. It provides something priceless: a safe place to explore being a widower, and be with other's on this unexpected journey. It's difficult to describe the relief, finding a place you actually want to go to, when swallowed by grief. I've transitioned through all the groups (Early, Transistions and Perspectives) and now feel honored to support the clients and the organization as a volunteer.

When my husband suddenly died in December 2010, a friend gently told me of the role The Healing Center played in her own loss. From my first time meeting with a counselor, through "Early Group", and now in "Transitions", the peer and professional support I have experienced has been outstanding.

I first became involved with the healing center when I was a freshman in high school, I had lost my father as well as other close family members. Initially I found great support, understanding, and compassion in their Teen Group, both from the leaders of the group, and the other teens involved. My involvement as a volunteer began with working at annual fundraisers, and eventually I came to volunteer in the office every week. The environment at the center is always one of kindness, this never changed whether I was at the center as a client or a volunteer.

I started bringing my son to the healing center after my husband and his father died. They have been wonderful at helping both of us navigate the grief process.
