Camp Brave Heart and Bereavement Supporters

Bereavement services are a critical part of Hospice Austin’s work with caregivers. Last year, for example, we provided more than 1,300 counseling sessions, and facilitated about 285 support group sessions. “I cannot tell you how much relief our sessions have afforded me,” said one participant. “I think it is because I now have more hope and a trusted lifeline.”

We also offer grief support to the community at-large, which includes Camp Brave Heart, our beloved sleepaway camp for school-aged youth. The impact, for some, is transformative. “He’s really opened up and shown his emotions since camp. He even wants to be a camp counselor next year,” a guardian shared.

We are particularly grateful to Bobbi Topfer’s Bluebirds & Friends and the ECG Foundation, along with our 2024 Camp Brave Heart and bereavement sponsors: H-E-B, Montandon Charitable Trust, Service Insurance Companies, Texas Oncology, and the Topfer Family Foundation.
