Providing a special place for children and teens to understand their grief, Good Shepherd Hospice Bethany Center is a place of hope and healing. The caring and professionally trained staff and volunteers are dedicated to providing compassionate grief support to children, ages 3 to 18, and their families.

Bethany Center

Our center promotes the understanding of grief through education and advocacy in the community. The Bethany Center offers the following:

  • Children and family support groups: Available to adults, teens and children to help facilitate healthy grief work through sharing and creative self-expression. Inside the Bethany Center’s activity rooms, feelings are expressed through art, games and dramatic play.
  • Grief Cave: Children are able to write personal messages on the walls of this unique space where their words glow in the dark.
  • Camp Brave Heart: Annual spring camp for children ages 6 to 16 who live in Polk, Highlands or Hardee counties.
