Helping families heal.

New Song Center is open to any child, teen, and young adult in our community, who is grieving the death of a loved one—regardless of whether Hospice of the Valley cared for that family member.

We'll find the right group to help your family heal. There is no cost to attend New Song support groups or activities. 

We also support schools, businesses and community groups that need grief counseling or education.

My husband, son and myself attend New Song. It really is an amazing place with amazing people. My 11 year old son really enjoys it and says it has helped him a lot. We are so thankful for this group!

New Song was an absolute blessing for my boys and I after my husband passed away a few years ago. All of the volunteers are caring and supportive and really helped us heal through the grieving process. I can honestly say without the support of New Song, our journey would have been much more difficult. It's another branch of Hospice of the Valley that truly provides care, empathy and kindness for families and their loved ones who have to deal with difficult circumstances. They are true angels.

As a school-based mental health professional I have utilized New Song services on a number of occasions over the last few years. I consistently refer students and families experiencing grief to their NO COST support groups and resources. They have been responsive, helpful, and caring!

New Song is an amazing organization offering many options and opportunities to support children and their families who have been impacted by the death of a loved one. Not only do they offer individual counseling, group therapies, and events for the community at their location, they have implemented small group therapy for students on our school campus. They are also able to support our Spanish speaking population.
