Mourning Hope Grief Center Hits Halfway Mark for Capital Campaign Goal
The Mourning Hope Grief Center (mourninghope.org) announced today that its “Make Room for HOPE” capital campaign is more than halfway to its $4 million goal. The campaign will build Lincoln’s first permanent facility dedicated to supporting children, teens and families grieving the death of someone significant in their lives. The building will also house additional services and resources that address adverse childhood experiences.
The “Make Room for HOPE” capital campaign is co-chaired by Doug and Pam Ganz, and Dave and Terry Hansen, with ten additional community volunteers serving on “Team HOPE”, the campaign cabinet. Under their leadership, the campaign has raised more than $2.2 million.
Mourning Hope plans to build at 1311 South Folsom St., adjacent to the Willard Community Center and Schroder Park. The new Center will provide bereavement support for children, teens, young adults and their families. The home-like design includes a multi-purpose room with substantial participant capacity, and specialty breakout rooms of various sizes for healing activities.
Lead “Make Room for HOPE” donors include a local family foundation; Union Bank & Trust; Nelnet; Ameritas; Dave and Terry Hansen; Mourning Hope’s board of directors, board of trustees, and staff; and the Community Health Endowment of Lincoln.
