If you’re grieving, you don’t have to do it alone. Cornerstone of Hope is a nonprofit Comprehensive Bereavement Support Center serving Ohio. Established in 2003, Cornerstone of Hope offers support to children and families, as well as resources for schools, businesses, and related professionals working with bereaved individuals. Some of the services include individual counseling, support groups, seminars, holiday events, yoga, and more.
Cornerstone of Hope offers programming throughout the year, including themed events to help get you through specific holidays and events that may be difficult during the grief process.
No two journeys of grief are the same, but they are all difficult, confusing, and lonely. Please reach out for help if you are struggling with your grief.

The Lyrics of Loss | Wednesday, September 29 at 6 p.m.
Do you have a favorite song that takes you right back to that time and place of when you first heard it? Or a song that reminds you of a fun memory with a friend or loved one? Supported by science, actively engaging in music transforms our brain and actually helps us to cope in our day to day functioning.
In this session, board-certified music therapist, Cassandra Acree, will play live and recorded music that supports your own individual grieving process. Come with a few ideas of songs that are important to you, and with an open ear to listen to others as they share their stories in song too.
We’ll add future programming throughout the year as it’s scheduled.
