Heartache 2 Hope
Heartache2Hope offers support to suicide loss grievers in Halton and surrounding communities. Founded in 2014, this registered charity recognizes the unique needs of individuals grieving a suicide death and the lack of community-based supportive resources.
Their goal is to break the silence of suicide loss. They strive to meet the unique needs of individuals who have experienced the death of a loved one by suicide through their grief support programs. They provide public awareness education and specialized training to community organizations in hopes to break the isolation and reduce the stigma around suicide loss.
Their Suicide Loss Support Groups provide a safe, confidential place where people coping with suicide loss can share their experiences and feelings while giving and receiving support from each other. They believe there is great strength to be gained from sharing the journey with others.
Special thanks to nominating member Rick Santing for introducing us to H2H and the great work they do in Oakville and across Halton.
Our $16,200 donation was presented to them on July 8, 2019.
"A big thank you to 100 Guys Who Care Oakville from Heartache2Hope for your generous gift of $16,200. Heartache2Hope is a small, but busy, community-based organization that provides grief support to adults after a suicide loss. Your financial support makes a huge difference to our organization’s efforts in providing suicide loss grievers safety, comfort and guidance to start the healing process. Every dollar will be directly used to provide 3 12-week Support Groups and 50 individual grief support sessions in the next year.
Thank you for believing that suicide loss grievers need special care and support-- and for turning that belief into action through your financial support. Knowing that we have your confidence warms our hearts and motivates us to work even harder towards our goal of helping people build hope and resilience after loss.
From the bottom of our heart, thank you for being 100 Guys who care!"
