Grief is the emotion experienced after a loss. The loss can be in many forms including losing a job, a relationship, the death of a loved one or divorce. Sometimes grief can be complicated where people get stuck in the various phases of grieving. Whatever the cause may be, we can help.

If you or someone you know would benefit from our services, please have them call the center. Prior to enrolling in a program, families must schedule an intake interview with one of our licensed professional counselors. To schedule this, please contact us by phone or by email.

The Center

The Mending Hearts Grief Center is so much more than a place where grieving children come to heal. We change lives. The center was founded in October 2015, as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Recognizing the permanent impact loss can have on young people, the MHGC was established to help children and families grieving the death of a loved one. In a culture that does not talk about grief and bereavement, and in a world that doesn’t “get it,” we do.

As the sole provider in Brazos County of grief support programs for children through young adulthood, we wholeheartedly devote ourselves to addressing the grief and loss needs of children from every culture and social circumstance to help them heal and move forward. We believe that each person’s journey through grief is unique and therefore deserving of a distinctive approach to healing. Our goal is to help children and their caregivers understand the depth of their grief, stabilize and preserve family relationships, and develop healthy coping skills after the death of a loved one. 

Mending Hearts Grief Center is a part of The Hope Center, a missions outreach ministry of Christ United Methodist Church
