ABOUT US

 MISSION AND VISION STATEMENT

Our mission is to provide professional grief support services with a primary focus on children who lost a parent or sibling to homicide. Our Trauma-Informed care team of volunteers addresses grief as a public health service. Circle of Hope believes that all children suffering the traumatic loss of a loved one should have accessible support and feel safe as they work to heal while working through their grief.

Compassion:

We believe that all children deserve to be treated with compassion and understanding even more so after experiencing the trauma of losing a parent or sibling to homicide.  

Excellence:

We strive to provide the highest quality services to the population we serve. We are committed to working with schools, churches, housing developments, shelters, youth programs, social service agencies, etc. to ensure that the needs of the child that's been impacted by homicide are met.

Inclusivity:

We are committed to providing services that are inclusive of all children, regardless of their race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Collaboration:

We believe that collaboration is essential to providing effective services to the population of children and families who qualify for our program. We will continue to work closely with other community organizations to ensure that our clients have access to the resources necessary in case a referral is needed.

A Circle of Hope: A Story of Resilience and Healing

Homicide is a devastating experience for children of all ages. They may feel a range of emotions, including sadness, anger, guilt, and confusion. They may also have difficulty coping with the loss of their loved one and the changes that occur in their lives.

 

Circle of Hope is a program that provides support and guidance to children and families who have been affected by homicide. The program offers a variety of services, including individual and group counselling, support groups, mentors, and life coaches.

Circle of Hope is committed to providing convenient and accessible services to families in need. The program offers evening and weekend hours and is accessible to the KCATA bus lines.

There is a great need for a program such as Circle of Hope in our urban communities. Homicide is a major public health problem in many cities, and the impact on children can be devastating.

If you or someone you know has been affected by homicide, please reach out to Circle of Hope. We are here to help.

''Together, we can create a circle of hope for children who have been impacted by homicide.''
