Healing House-Hope for Grieving Children welcomes the community to attend their Fall Open House
Healing House-Hope for Grieving Children welcomes the community to attend their Fall Open House series at the agency’s new home, Randon’s Place at Healing House. The Open Houses will take place on October 24, November 21, and December 12 from 7:30am – 4:00pm at 160 South Beadle Road in Lafayette. Healing House staff will be on hand to answer any questions about services, provide needed resources, and educate guests on the structure of the agency’s grief support group programs and community outreach.
After two decades of providing support to grieving children across Acadiana, Healing House has grown along with the community it serves. As the only children’s grief center within a 200 mile radius, each year hundreds of children are given a safe space to work through the death of a parent or sibling with a dedicated support staff. Our new, larger location will ensure no child in Acadiana will ever have to grieve alone. The new larger facility, named Randon’s Place at Healing House, in memory of Mrs. Randon Costello, will allow Healing House to more than double the number of grief support groups being offered as the need continues to grow.
The 2.5 acre property, located on Beadle Road in Lafayette, now serves as a refuge for grieving families. The expansive outdoor space provides room for a meditation garden, labyrinth, children’s play area, and a place for families to gather and connect with others grieving the loss of their loved one.
Healing House; Hope for Grieving Children provides an atmosphere that allows children ages 4 to 18 to express their grief through interactive play, expressive art work and discussion groups with peers experiencing the same trauma. All services provided by the Healing House are free of charge and run by volunteers.
Healing House relies on the generosity of our community through individual, corporate and family foundation donations.
