Stephen Ministers are laypeople—Christian men and women—trained to provide one-to-one care to people experiencing a difficult time in life, such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, relocation, or separation due to military deployment.
Stephen Ministers come from all walks of life. Their commonality? A passion for bringing Christ’s love and care to people during a time of need.

The Hope & Healing Place – The Hope & Healing Place (HHP) is a local non-profit organization that provides grief support to families in the Texas Panhandle, free-of-charge. Our mission is to promote the healing journey for children, families, and individuals by providing a safe place to express your grief. We have several programs designed around discussion topics and art projects that facilitate conversation about grief and loss.
“Generations” is a family program that takes a developmental perspective on grief and offers age-based support groups that maximize the shared experience of the group setting. In their own groups, children and adults are guided by trained volunteers, and taught effective coping strategies for grief to promote resilience. Adults are additionally given material to help their child in their grief journey long after they leave HHP.
“La Esperanza” is a family program modeled after the Generations program for the Spanish speaking community.
“SOS” is an adults only support group for those who have lost a loved one to suicide. This type of death involves a totally different dynamic and the grief can sometimes be more difficult to navigate through.
“Heartprints” is an adults only support group for those who have lost a baby in utero, and up to 2-years old. This type of loss often gets negated, and at HHP we want to help this underrepresented population cope with the significant loss of a child.
