Communities

When there is a loss in a community, it affects individuals, families and the collective experience of that community. Harbor Lights partners with local governments and community-based organizations to offer support, education and resources to communities who are experiencing loss. Believing that support needs to meet the needs of the community our approach is very flexible and we are happy to work with the leaders in the community to determine what support is most helpful.  This may include:

  • Local grief counseling during a time of crisis
  • Consultation with town officials and/or community organization leadership
  • Local support groups for children, families or community members
  • Education and support meetings for families or school community – topics could include: talking with children about death, coping skills and strategies, activities for community around loss
