Griefography is an artistic expression of grief and an exploration of healing through the use of photography.
Many young people who have experienced the death of a loved one find it difficult to express themselves verbally after facing such a traumatic event.
Griefography is a project designed to capture images via photography that portray grief and loss when emotions or words can’t. It lets the child transform their grief into an image that can transcend time and emotions as they tell a story about their lost loved one using photos in place of words to memorialize them.
The Hope & Healing Place would like to initiate this inspirational program for the youth and teens going through our Generations program. We are looking for sponsors to help us cover the cost of purchasing cameras, the printing of photographs and creation of memory books. If you are interested in helping us out with this project please go to
As our Generations Family Support Program nears completion of each cycle we have youth come to us and tell us their parents may leave but they are staying!
Several years ago we began a Junior Facilitator coaching model for our younger teens.
On a family program evening these great young pepple assist our adult Volunteer Facilitators in our younger child support groups. Not only do they organize the room, get art supplies, they also help if we have a active young one in a group that evening.
These graduate youth take responsibility for so much and do so very well, week after week.
At each Generations family evening we debrief the evening with our adult volunteers. '
Our Junior Facilitators have their own debriefing and add to our understanding of our younger children each evening.
So, Thanks to Peyton, Autumn, Tucker, Mary, and Jennifer for making us all better!!!
