What Is HealGrief?
HealGrief is a social support network creating community after a loved one has died. Everything we do is inspired by our core belief that no one should ever grieve alone.
HealGrief is dedicated to support the bereaved by offering a virtual location, without geographical boundaries, where individuals and a community can communicate a death, connect, mourn and heal, while celebrating a loved one’s life. Our commitment is to provide an understanding of grief by increasing universal awareness and education, while offering resources to support a healthy grief recovery.
By taking advantage of technology and social media, HealGrief.org takes a modern approach to the way individuals communicate a loved one’s death. HealGrief.org uses the technology and brings family, friends and communities from around the globe to a local place to grieve and heal together.
HealGrief.org helps individuals through the grieving process from the moment a loved one dies. HealGrief.org starts by taking the place of the traditional obituary notice. At no cost, users create a funeral notice, disseminate it to family and friends around the globe and gain instant comfort as condolences are expressed, virtual candles are lit and memories are shared, transforming the funeral notice into a celebration of the decedent’s life.
To remove the taboo regarding death by creating a conversation about an inevitable life cycle and to validate the feelings and emotions associated with bereavement. To remove the stigma and misconceptions about grief and have a more compassionate world that recognizes “time won’t heal” and no one will “get over” the death of a loved one.
About Our Logo
The hummingbird is taken to be a symbol of resurrection. This is because each hummer becomes lifeless and seems to die on cold nights, but it comes back to life again when the miraculous sunrise brings warmth.
HealGrief participates in community activities that create awareness and support for the services available through HealGrief.org as well as the importance and need for a healthy grief recovery.
