17 Dec Hope Floats Healing & Wellness Center
The Solstice Foundation 2015 grant round included a significant donation to Hope Floats Healing & Wellness Center to support three daylong support retreats for adults who are struggling with bereavement. These retreats include one for parents who have lost a child to an overdose, one for parents who have lost a child under any circumstance, and one for individuals who have lost a loved one to suicide.
Hope Floats was founded in 2008 Ken and Denise Brack in memory of their son Michael, who passed in 2002. Having learned how such a loss is devastating and isolating, they wanted to offer support and resources to others going through a similar crisis. Today the center offers a variety of free support groups, support retreats and complementary wellness classes, body treatments and workshops.
We are all so very fortunate to have this resource in our community. Hope Floats offers bereavement services and support to the community free of charge. We urge you to learn more about this wonderful organization and consider giving if so inspired: http://www.hopefloatswellness.org
