The Pathways Center for Grief & Loss is a free resource to the entire community, regardless of whether your loved one is or was a hospice patient. Our mission is to support and encourage the inherent ability to heal and discern new paths on one’s journey through grief. Professionally trained and masters-level Pathways Center counselors are committed to:

  • Providing support to individuals of all ages
  • Educating others about common grief responses
  • Facilitating opportunities to interact with others who have had similar experiences
  • Teaching effective coping skills
  • Helping individuals realize the choices that they have on their grief journey
  • Acting as a grief and bereavement resource to the community

What types of services are offered by the Pathways Center?

Hospice & Community Care’s Pathways Center is here to help meet the individual needs of anyone in the community who is coping with the loss of a loved one. From support groups, counseling, online support, camps and more, we welcome the opportunity to support you.

“I was always able to come away from each group I attended with a newer appreciation of the grief process and helpful suggestions on how to make it easier to handle.” ~Paul K. Smith, Lancaster.
