Each Monday, Curio412 highlights good news of service and innovation in our communities!

The Highmark Caring Place, A Center for Grieving Children, Adolescents, and Their Families is a safe place where grieving children and families find peer support, coming together with others who understand what they’re going through.

The Caring Place offers services at no charge to grieving families from throughout the community. The Caring Place began in Pittsburgh in 1996, with additional sites opening in Erie, Harrisburg and Warrendale. Since that time, the program has served more than 100,000 family and community members.

Since 2015, the Caring Place has sponsored “Illuminating HOPE,” an initiative where thousands of butterflies are filled with messages of remembrance and encouragement for those who have experienced the death of someone important to them.

This year’s Illuminating HOPE is a virtual collection of butterflies. It is a special opportunity for the community to come together to let grieving children know that they are not forgotten and help them to find the light of HOPE.
