Evidence of Program's Success

The biggest evidence of program success is the tremendous number of people who are referred to our groups and programs. That tells us we are meeting a need and have people referred by friends, neighbors, clergy, physicians, other grief support organizations, etc. And people keep coming back. So many have told us "I don't know what I would have done without HeartLight Center."

Evidence of Program's Success

Since developing this program in 2003, HeartLight Center has offered Facing the Mourning on a regular basis, usually twice a year. One piece of evidence is when people who have participated in the 4-week group tell others about how helpful of an experience it was for them and urge others in our monthly support groups to attend Facing the Mourning.

Several grief support professionals have moved away from the Denver area and have introduced Facing the Mourning to their new communities in other parts of the country.
