Welcome to our SV Gives Online Giving Portal from May 3rd through May 6th. We appreciate your support of Kara!

Kara's mission is to provide grief support for children, teens, families, adults, and organizations.

In a survey of our closed clients, 89% responded that their physical, mental, and emotional health increased after receiving Kara’s services. 100% responded they would recommend Kara to a friend!

Kara is the Gothic root of the word "care." It means to reach out, to care, to lament, to grieve with.

Our vision is to see people of all ages compassionately supported on their journey through grief so they can move toward renewed hope and meaning. Our clients include those who are grieving a death as well as those coping with a terminal illness (their own or another's).

Change, loss and trauma are natural in the cycle of life and grief is our natural reaction. Kara offers a safe and caring environment where those coping with death and dying can express and normalize their feelings of grief. Support from those with experience in dealing with personal loss can help ease the pain and promote healing. Our services are offered to individuals, families and organizations in our Bay Area community.
