Our HOPE Mentor program matches bereaved parents with our trained volunteers on an 'as available' basis. Our volunteers do not provide professional support, but they are available for peer to peer contact through an initial email and then follow-up email, phone, Skype, or text.
All of our mentors are bereaved parents or grandparents - many with full-time jobs and families - but all of them respond as quickly as they can. We do our best to fill mentor requests in a timely manner, but we may not be able to match all requests at the time we receive them.
To request a HOPE Mentor please email our HOPE mentor coordinator, Laurie-Beth If you do not receive a reply within 72 hours, please check your SPAM folder. Our emails sometimes are sent to spam.
Our volunteers are all bereaved parents or grandparents. They are not professional or crisis counselors. To request information about our professional counseling services click here or to find one of our certified bereavement care providers please click here.
