We are looking for meal providers! This is a great way to give back to the community with a group of friends, with a volunteer organization, or as a family! You can choose to make a meal or purchase a meal and serve it with us. You can also donate a gift card or make a monetary donation.
If you have questions, you can email us at program@johgriefsupport.org.

In celebration of our 25th Anniversary, we now have our very own Journey of Hope Tribute Bears for 2023!

Your purchase of Ginger or Cocoa (or both!) will provide one of these teddy bears for a child and help to support our program so that no child grieves alone.

Our School Based program needs your support!

We are supporting 14 school districts in North Texas by providing elementary and middle/high school curriculum and all the supplies needed for school counselors to lead peer grief support groups during the school year! 

You can sponsor a school or a district. Details coming soon!
