Center for Grief & Healing

Grieving the loss of a loved one is a painful, yet natural part of healing. We’re here to help you navigate through that process. We offer ongoing bereavement support at no cost to anyone in our service area, even if your loved one hasn’t received care from Hospice of the Piedmont. You’re always welcome to join our support groups, events, workshops, camps, and individual counseling if you live in our 12-county service region. See below for more information about how Hospice of the Piedmont’s Center for Grief & Healing serves our local community.

Our spring and fall memorial services in Charlottesville and Culpeper celebrate loved ones with live music, a candle-lighting, and inspirational readings; see our calendars.

A vital part of the services we provide is our Grief Intervention Support Team (GIST), which provides bereavement and trauma services at no charge to local schools, workplaces, and organizations after a loss or disaster. To learn more about GIST, call 434-817-6900, email info@hopva.org, or click to see our flyer.

If you’re grieving and need support, we understand and want to help. Contact us now at 434-817-6900, 1-800-975-5501, or bereavementinfo@hopva.org.


  • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently only offering online support groups to residents of our 12-county service region (central and northern Virginia counties including Albemarle, Augusta, Buckingham, Culpeper, Fauquier, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Nelson, Orange, and Rappahannock).
