Welcome to Western Reserve Grief Services

Western Reserve Grief Services is a community based grief support program that provides services throughout Northern Ohio. We offer support to anyone who has experienced a loss due to death. 

Our mission is to assist the bereaved as they move through the grief process by providing support groups, education and training, individual grief support for hospice families, and crisis response to the bereaved and those who work with them.

Our services extend to providing assistance to schools, in the workplace and offering resources to those grieving at any age, from children to older adults. 

Crisis Response

A sudden and unexpected death can generate a severe crisis. The bereavement center provides crisis intervention when there is a death that impacts a community. Examples include the death of a teacher, co-worker, police officer or student. We provide immediate phone consultation, which often results in on-site services within 24 to 48 hours. The focus of the crisis response supports leadership in the decision-making process and can include: crisis intervention, Critical Stress Incident Debriefing (CSID), informational sessions and staff support. We have crisis tool kits and hand-outs available at all times.

Do you have question? Such as:​

  1. We didn’t use hospice services. Can I still get bereavement support?
  2. What kind of programs do you have for children?
  3. What about expressive therapy and other specialty programs?​
