Family Support Services

Bereavement Services: Hope & Healing Program at the Provident Bank Hope & Healing Center

The Hope and Healing Program is supported in part by The Jeffrey David Walerstein Foundation.

Grieving is a healthy and normal response to any loss. It is important to find support that can give you the strength to live a healthy and full life while you work through your grief.

Our Hope & Healing Program is one of the only places where you will find specially trained counselors, clinical social workers and volunteers who have a unique expertise in all aspects of bereavement. Our bereavement support team can help you through the grieving process, guiding you to a place where you can find peace of mind.

If you have lost a family member or friend under HeartWise care, there is never a cost for any of our services.
