About Us

Healing Grace’s mission is to provide support, guidance, love, and community to families that have suffered (or will suffer) the death of an infant at any stage of pregnancy and within the first year of life. We exist to cultivate hope and provide the necessary support for the healing journey after loss including but not limited to; professional and peer support provided in individual, community, video on demand and workshop settings, birth planning, funeral planning support, as well as comfort boxes and other products to support maternal grief.

This is a community that has come together because of loss, but is connected by our mutual vision of hope.

At Healing Grace you will find a safe, loving environment to support you in whatever part of the healing process you are in. This journey does not have a start or an end. It is a continuum that is ever changing. From laughter and remembering with a smile one moment, only to feel an overwhelming feeling of sorrow fall over you the next and a need to cry it out, Healing Grace is here for you.

Thank you for visiting! Whether you are here seeking support or here to support our families, we are excited to welcome you to the Healing Grace community. We are stronger together.

No life too small.

Upcoming Events

Trauma Sensitive Yoga

Sunday July 25, 2021 @ 3pm
Hosted by Healing Grace: Center for Hope and Healing at ADK YOGA and Family Center 22 US Oval, Plattsburgh, NY 12901

We are happy to annouce another session of trauma-sensitive yoga event. Dr. Ariel Goodman, a licensed trauma-sensitive yoga instructor and mental health counselor. This workshop will provide a short overview of Trauma-Sensitive Yoga/movement and invite you to experience a movement practice in the safety of your own home with your Zoom camera turned off. This yoga workshop will be different from what you might find at a local yoga studio. You will be guided through a series of gentle movements, with no “correct” postures or praise for flexibility. The goal of TSY is to engage the whole organism in the healing process—body, mind, and spirit. If you have any questions about the workshop, please contact Ariel directly at agood018@plattsburgh.edu.

If you are interested in joining our group please email sarahw@healinggraceph.org.
