Braveheart Family Workshops


Through the Braveheart program, children, teens (ages 6-18) and their families realize they are not alone in their grief.

With support from JourneyCare’s specially trained counselors, they learn about facing changes now and in the future while sharing memories of their loved ones, finding hope after loss and celebrating their lives together.
