Oconomowoc Community Center
Healing Hearts of Southeast Wisconsin is a community-based organization whose mission is to serve and support grieving children and their families.
In October, 2009, a group of concerned individuals representing six Waukesha Wisconsin churches and two funeral homes began meeting to address the need of a safe place for children and families to grieve.
This insightful group recognized that there are many types of losses and causes of grief and established Healing Hearts of Southeast Wisconsin, Inc. to offer free peer-support programs for children and the significant adults in their lives who are dealing with loss due to death, divorce, trauma, addition, abandonment, incarceration, deportation and other life other life altering events.
This birthed a wonderfully valuable organization that delivers validation, support, joy, and hope to an overlooked gem in our community: our grieving children.
Broken Hearts to Healing Hearts
For over a decade, parents, guardians, and families have trusted Healing Hearts to be a source of comfort for their children, and many families have grown stronger together as they grieve and grow through Healing Hearts peer support groups.
Healing Hearts delivers their grieving program in a group, peer to peer setting. Different groups include: children's groups, teenage groups, Waukesha Christmas parade groups, young adult groups, adult groups, and grandparent groups
