The Forefront Living Foundation receives Hoglund Foundation Grant for Faith Presbyterian Hospice

The Forefront Living Foundation received a two-year $30,000 grant from the Hoglund Foundation on December 17.

These funds will provide DFW children a support system for mitigating the wide-ranging negative effects of parental and familial loss through Faith Presbyterian Hospice. All services will be offered for free and available to the entire community and those referred by outside organizations.

  • One-on-one visits with a child life specialist.
  • Educating parents and grandparents regarding the development aspects of grief in children.
  • Working with immediate caregivers to assist them in understanding the behaviors associated with grief.
  • As appropriate, providing and assisting with referral resources to grieving families who are at a high risk for complicated grief.
  • Facilitating monthly peer support groups, like Faith Kids, for children and families.
  • Offering bi-annual family grief camps, such as Camp Faith, which includes peer support breakout sessions, and opportunities to honor and remember loved ones.
