Prescott Hospice offers grief support for youth and families through the Heart Song Center for Grieving Children, recognizing the importance of connecting with others after the loss of a loved one. With the aid of a social accountability grant from the Good Samaritan Society, Heart Song serves children ages 6 to 18 and their parents, guardians, or extended families in a safe, supportive environment led by a team of servant-hearted volunteers.

- Open participation for all families, regardless of the cause of death or if the person was served by the hospice
- Programs throughout the year at local schools, the Boys & Girls Club and in collaboration with other public events in Prescott and surrounding areas
- No program cost to participate
Every day, more than 1,000 children and teens under the age of 19 are actively grieving the loss of a loved one in Prescott, Prescott Valley, Dewey-Humboldt, and Chino Valley, according to state statistics. The Heart Song Center is the only grief support group in Yavapai County that focuses on youth.
To help meet the needs of area youth and families, the center is seeking volunteers to serve as support group facilitators. Our facilitators help youth and adults with activities that honor the loss of a loved one on the path to healing. The Heart Song Center provides training, resources and education to become a facilitator at no cost.
