Review for Journey of Hope Grief Support Center, Plano, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2004 my husband died after a 2 yr fight with Leukemia. Being a single parent with 4 children was not in my plan and having to pick up the pieces was overwhelming. A friend referred us to Journey of Hope and it helped me to start breathing again. I knew I needed a place for all of us to get support with this huge loss. Journey of Hope having dinner was a huge help with working and trying to get home, round of the kids and make it on time. Meeting other families who were in the same place as us gave us support to walk this out together. The support groups helped us learn to grieve and celebrate his life. Now, 12 years later, my four children are young adults finding independence and starting their families. Journey of Hope is a safe place that allows you to be right where you are and the authority of your grief. I now have the honor to be a group facilitator and with my family we serve the families dinner a few times a year. I continue to learn new things everyday from one involved and I am very thankful for Journey of Hope.
