Kara's mission is to provide grief support for children, teens, families and adults. Our guiding value is empathy. Every day we provide compassion and support to children and adults because loss and grief impact everyone. 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.  Click here for a summary description of Kara's bereavement services.

Kara is the Gothic root of the word "care." It means to reach out, to care, to lament, to grieve with.

The one who can be present with us in our hours of grief,
who can tolerate not knowing, and face with us the reality of
our vulnerability, that is the one who gives us our best caring.
