Community Grief Services


Hope Hospice Grief Support is available to serve individuals and families of all ages.


Grief Counseling

Our counselors are experienced in working with grieving adults, children, and families. We will meet with you to discuss your grief experience and create a plan that will best meet your needs.

If Hope Hospice served your loved one, there is no fee for counseling. We offer a sliding fee scale for community clients seeking counseling based on your current financial situation and needs. Fees are decided and agreed upon during the intake interview and may be adjusted when a significant change in income or financial status occurs. There is no fee for intake interviews.

Our counseling team can speak with you over the phone if you have a question or particular concern. For more in-depth assistance, we recommend you take the first step in your healing journey by calling (830) 358-5300 to schedule an initial visit.

Recognizing that you are not alone and support is available is essential. Groups help you meet others who have had experiences similar to yours and learn essential coping skills.

Offers counseling, support groups, and grief camps, and this program provides:

  • It provides a safe and nurturing environment for children to focus on their grief.
  • It gives children the opportunity to bond with other children who are grieving.
  • Decreases fears related to death and dying by addressing these concerns in a group setting through therapeutic play, art, and talking.
  • By participating in groups, children and teens feel less alone and learn that others are feeling many of the same emotions they are experiencing.
