What is HopeWest Kids?

When illness or tragedy affects a loved one, children often need help finding ways to cope with the impact. HopeWest Kids is our program for grieving children and teens. The program is here to guide and support children and families going through the grief experience.

Funded exclusively through donations, HopeWest Kids focuses on children and families in our community regardless of whether or not they have had a family member served by HopeWest.
