Solace House Programs & Services

Center for Grief and HealingSolace House Center for Grief and Healing is designed to be a nurturing place to guide children, individuals and families through the difficult time following the death of a loved one. Solace House programs provide opportunities to share, listen, learn and heal.

Grief affects people in different ways and triggers a variety of emotional issues. Solace House is not the answer for situations requiring crisis counseling, psychotherapy, or other general mental health counseling or therapy. It is best to wait at least a couple of weeks before starting services.

Solace House is a beginning point for grieving families who need compassionate direction. Solace House helps people regain a sense of balance and equips them to honor loss and integrate the grief journey into their life experience.

Solace House is the only organization of its kind to serve the Greater Kansas City metropolitan area and surrounding communities.

Our Goals

The goals of Solace House are to help children, individuals and families:

  • Explore their reactions to death
  • Understand emotional, behavioral, physical, social and spiritual responses related to loss
  • Adapt to changes they may experience
  • Develop strategies for coping, communicating, accepting and healing

Our Beliefs

Solace House was founded on these beliefs:

  • Strong emotional reactions, like deep sorrow or anger, are natural reactions to the death of a loved one for children as well as adults
  • Everyone has the capacity to heal
  • The intensity and duration of each individual’s grief is unique
  • A caring community can greatly assist in the healing process


Solace House is a not-for-profit organization and welcomes donations. Some services may have a fee.
