After two decades of providing support to grieving children throughout Acadiana, Healing House-Hope for Grieving Children has moved into a new facility on South Beadle Road.
The new larger facility, named Randon’s Place at Healing House, in memory of Mrs. Randon Costello, will allow Healing House to more than double the number of grief support groups being offered, thus eliminating their current waiting list, and providing ample space for future families requesting services. Randon’s Place at Healing House features expanded program areas allowing for specialized support groups based on how the child’s loved one died (extended illness, suicide, homicide, etc.), definitive spaces for adult caregivers to participate in their own support groups, and an extensive resource library available to the community.
As the only children’s grief center within 200 miles of Lafayette, each year hundreds of children are given a safe space to work through the death of a parent or sibling. The new facility ensures no child in Acadiana will ever have to grieve alone.
Healing House; Hope for Grieving Children provides an atmosphere that allows children ages 4 to 18 to express their grief through interactive play, expressive art work and discussion groups with peers experiencing the same trauma. All services provided by the Healing House are free of charge and run by volunteers.
Healing House relies on the generosity of our community through individual, corporate and family foundation donations.
