Loss and grief have tremendously impacted children and families in our community and many find themselves overwhelmed by the pandemic and other life-altering events.  Stories of death and separation occur daily.  Loss and grief are compounding.  Drug overdose and suicides are skyrocketing.

Demand for our services has expanded while our funds and resources have diminished.

Healing Hearts of Waukesha County services are greatly needed – and so are the funds to support them.



Donate Online Now

Healing Hearts now provides grief support in the following ways:

  • On-line support groups for children, teens, young adults, and adults who have lost children.

  • In-school support groups for middle schools and high schools.

  • Grief support training for volunteers and members of the community.

All programs strive to offer comfort, compassion, and guidance to navigate the challenge of grief and help build coping skills and resiliency

…and the results are remarkable.

Our local families greatly need our support, and we greatly need yours!
