Healing Grace’s mission is to cultivate a safe and welcoming space that allows us to provide support, guidance, love, and community to all families that have suffered (or will suffer) the death of an infant at any stage of pregnancy and within the first year of life. As we expand our reach and services, we welcome all those that are experiencing grief and loss. To know love we will all know grief. We exist to foster 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 support, funeral planning support, as well as comfort boxes and other remembrance items to support all those grieving.
Healing Grace is committed to providing grace, love and support to all. We are a center built on the foundation that all humans need a place to feel comfortable to be themselves and express their grief without fear and judgement.
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.
New Programming Announcement
Miscarriage Comfort Kit Program
This program is designed to acknowledge the loss of a pregnancy, both the physical process and emotional process. These kits provide a small gift to the woman that is experiencing this loss to let them know they are not alone and validating all the big emotions they may be going through or will go through. Along with the gift is a booklet answering many questions they may have and to provide our contact information for continued support. It discusses the different options they have and the physical process that their body will go through. If the family would like to bring the baby home to bury, we have provided biodegradable urns with a small heart that when planted blooms.
This program is created in the image of Empty Arms Bereavement Massachusetts.

“My husband and I lost our 9-month-old daughter Zoey in 2017, before Healing Grace was even created. We were lucky to have the support of wonderful family and friends, but there wasn’t much guidance on how to navigate the beginning of our grief journey. Though years later, I am so grateful for the safe space of understanding, friendship, and ultimately hope that Healing Grace has offered – because as anyone on this journey knows – it never ends.” – Tiffani Light
In order for Healing Grace to continue to grow into a thriving pillar of the community, we are counting on donations from compassionate people like you.
Every Story Has a Beginning By Sarah Munn-Wojtaszek, November 2nd, 2022 "Grief is a journey," to me it sounds like a dumb cliche. I have been saying...
It has been far too long since I posted. I last wrote in December 2021 and from there Healing Grace continues to strive to find our way and to be the grief center our North Country needs. I was recently asked to speak at a local Circle of Hope Memorial. Speaking and sharing no matter how many times I do it creates an unbelievable amount of anticipatory anxiety. AND yet every time I share about the legacy of my daughter and how she continues to live and breathe in the walls of this center, I walk away cathartically relieved.
I know I am not the only mother that lost a baby either in pregnancy or after the baby was born to have this deep dark secret. At least for me it is...
