Community Healing Hearts
We provide grief support and education to children and adolescents in the grieving process. Through proactive and preventive care services, our goal is to prevent the need for long-term support services or mental health treatment. School-based grief services also available.
Camp Erin® Indianapolis

It is a fun, traditional camp combined with grief education, peer bonding, and emotional support led by grief support professionals and trained volunteers.

Perhaps there is someone important in your life who has braved a tough journey. Or maybe you want to celebrate the memory of a loved one. This is a meaningful way to honor or remember someone special while also making a direct impact in the lives of other patients.
