Willow House uses art as therapy to help grieving families.

It's a situation no one wants to think about: losing a loved one. But it's important to know, if it happens, there are free services available.

Willow House offers grief services and group programs, including Expressive Arts. It gives people a place to share their grief in ways they can.

Willow House now has workshops in both English and Spanish.
