Community Foundation Grant Supports Alive’s Grief Center

Alive is grateful to the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee for supporting our Grief Center programs with a grant of $2,800 for the coming year (2023). The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee is a charitable organization dedicated to enriching the quality of life in the 40 Middle Tennessee counties it serves and made $2,802,040 in local grants in 2022.

Alive’s Grief Center offers a place of comfort for anyone facing a loss. Support is available to caregivers and families coping with a life-limiting illness as well as children and adults who are bereaved. Thanks to generous donors, Alive can provide these services at an affordable rate to the entire community, not just those with a loved one in our care.

Our expert grief counselors provide individual counseling, host expressive arts workshops, teach wellness practices, facilitate support groups, and run grief camps for kids. They also educate mental health professionals, school personnel and community organizations via customized workshops and training sessions. Most of our offerings are free, and no one is turned away due to a lack of funds.

The Grief Center is hosting special events to help those mourning a loss get through the holiday season. Learn more here.

Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things we face in life, but we don’t have to do it alone. Contact us to find out how we can help and connect you to our community.
