Kara's mission is to provide grief support for children, teens, families, adults, and organizations.
In a survey of our closed clients, 100% responded they would recommend Kara to a friend!
Said one client: Because of Kara, I was able to move through my grief journey from having trouble breathing some days, to acceptance, to being able to celebrate the wonderful life of my brother. Our community is stronger and healthier because of the tireless work of everyone involved in Kara’s mission.
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.
