We meet the third (3rd) Monday of every month, save for December, at The Haven Network office starting at 6:30pm. In addition to the specific topic for each session, there will also be time for parents to join together to engage in conversation about their personal experience and form friendships with other families in similar situations.

Healing Hearts Parent Support Group is now on Facebook! Search Facebook for “Healing Hearts Parent Support Group” and request to join our online group. This group was designed to foster communication between families enduring the death of their baby and to continue the conversation from our in person meetings. This is a safe place to share your experience and to connect with other families.
Delinda Grindle, LCSW, Director of Grief Services from kpcounseling.inc along with The Haven Network, have developed a caring and sensitive program to assist those families who have lost a baby. Delinda helps you in your journey through grief and loss, and provides a grief support opportunity to begin the process of embracing the uniqueness of your grief. In doing so, Delinda will assist you in living in a world that has now changed.
Delinda’s philosophy in counseling is, “Companioning individuals in their healing journeys”.
Since experiencing the death of a baby can be overwhelming, The Haven Network provides grief support services as an important part of your total care. Delinda offers individual or family grief sessions in addition to the Healing Hearts Parent Support Group.
We welcome the opportunity to visit with you or any family members who are interested in learning more about our Grief Support Program.
