Pittsburgh-area Bereavement Programs

The Highmark Caring Place champions the cause of grieving children by creating awareness of their needs, providing programs for them and their families, and empowering the community to effectively support them. The Caring Place program is a family program that focuses on the needs of children. There is no cost to the families for these groups or for any services provided by the Highmark Caring Place. The Caring Place is a community service, offered to all members of the community, regardless of health insurance. 

Free of charge and nonprofit, Cancer Bridges offers a warm, comfortable homelike environment where information is freely exchanged. Cancer Bridges' mission is to create welcoming communities of free support for everyone living with cancer, along with their families and friends. Weekly groups are planned, allowing members the opportunity to cry, laugh, share advice, and learn from one another.
