OUR MISSION
The mission of GriefWorks is to serve as a bereavement resource providing education and support for people grieving a death or seeking to understand the grief process.

OUR VISION
We envision a world where grieving people are supported in compassion and companionship as they journey through their unique loss experiences.

OUR WORK
GriefWorks offers support to the bereaved and education to the community on the subject of grief  as a natural, necessary, healing response to separation and loss. 

GriefWorks programs provide individuals and families with information about the grief process and opportunities to mourn in a safe environment.  Many of the bereaved served by GriefWorks are coping with overwhelming grief issues, including sudden or traumatic loss. 

In addition to serving the bereaved, GriefWorks leads trainings for school counselors, teachers, social workers, ministers, and other professionals, providing them with the skills, resources and tools to identify and serve the needs of grieving children, teens, and their families.

Nanette Flynn

Having experienced personal losses, Nanette Flynn and Mel Erickson recognized the need for grief education and support in the community. Their vision and passion, combined with their extensive bereavement education and training, led to the incorporation of GriefWorks in November 1998.  By July 1999, GriefWorks was designated by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)3 public charity.

Since its founding, GriefWorks has served over 10,000 children, teenagers, and adults in Pierce and King counties and has become known as a trusted bereavement resource.

OUR VALUES
GriefWorks’ governance, operations, and services are guided by FIVE CORE VALUES

• Care
• Respect
• Compassion
