Hope House wellness programs focus on renewing and supporting a sense of wellbeing, connection and community for those navigating  bereavement, serious health challenges as well as for caregivers.

These programs offer a soft place to land, an opportunity to pause and take a breath and create the space to attend to the body, mind and spirit.
