What does your company do?




This effort seeks a compelling, memorable name for the "Greeley Grief Center".

This facility, its staff, and services provide residents in the greater Greeley, Colorado region with help in the grieving process following the death (loss) of a loved one. The center serves the very young, the very old, and all ages in between.

Examples of services may include (this is not an exhaustive list)
- For children ... play therapy
- For youth/teenagers ... counseling/ small group support
- For adults ... life coaching
- For the elderly ... life skills and financial counseling

Elderly men, for example, may not have participated in their own domestic upkeep - cooking, cleaning, etc. Elderly of both genders may not have actively participated in money management and bill paying. Some elderly women, at the loss of their spouse, feel unsafe living alone at a family home, and some self-protection skills are sometimes appreciated.

In addition to sadness, guilt, and other emotions that can accompany loss, there are pragmatic/practical skills that may warrant improvement or intervention.

Don't let your struggle become your identity

One of the simplest ways to stay happy is... letting go of things that make you sad

I was one of those people who put too much emphasis on work and career and material possessions, and it took its toll on all my relationships, on my physical health, my emotional and mental health.

I don't know what to do now ... I just don't know what to do.



Do you have other info you want to share?

The name can be an expression, a word, or a word cluster. It needs to be simple, memorable, and compelling - probably an actual word or words, rather than an invented word. But, possibly there may be an expression or invented word that would work.

This effort seeks a compelling, memorable name for the "Greeley Grief Center".

This facility, its staff, and services provide residents in the greater Greeley, Colorado region with help in the grieving process following the death (loss) of a loved one. The center serves the very young, the very old, and all ages in between.

Examples of services may include (this is not an exhaustive list)
- For children ... play therapy and peer support
- For youth/teenagers ... peer support / small group support
- For adults ... instructional class on the grieving process and support group

The center provides a nurturing environment in which the needs for mourning can be fulfilled in the lives of adults, as well as children and their families, so that they can not only heal but grow.

This is accomplished by companioning the bereaved along their grief journeys.

This is not a counseling or therapy center. To companion the bereaved is not to walk behind or in front of them by telling them what to do, but instead to walk beside the, in a warm accepting environment with a structured curriculum.

The center includes an adult program that consists of a lecture type class with helpful information about the grief process, as well as support groups. The people in this program are widows, widowers; parents who have lost grow children, adults who have lost parents, siblings, co-workers and friends.

Grief is natural and organic. The center provides an environment that allows the bereaved to mourn. Grief is the inward emotional feelings in response to loss; mourning is the outward expression of inward grief. Active mourning is how healing begins.

Grief is isolating, especially for children and teens. Kids feel alone and keep their feelings inside not wanting to burden parents or family members. For children to be supported in their grief they need peer support and the nourishment of play – that necessary work the feeds the souls of all children.

Through lots of fun, specifically designed activities, and curriculum, they are allowed to verbalize their feelings, share their story and hear the stories of other children who have shared a similar loss.

The center provides the parents (or care givers) of the children and teens instructional classes and support groups that assists them in healing both for themselves and for their children.
