On Friday, May 6, 2022, Unity, Northeast Wisconsin’s nonprofit leader in hospice care, supportive care, nonmedical home care and grief support, will host its inaugural Luminary Walk to raise funds for the region’s only freestanding grief and education center, Unity Grief and Education Center. Designed to support individuals and families of all ages who have experienced a death, Unity Grief and Education Center is located at 2079 Lawrence Drive, De Pere. The new facility was created so no one in our community must grieve alone. It features dedicated counseling rooms to accommodate adults, children, and families in need of grief support, as well as a large room for education and public outreach. The Center is staffed by Unity’s experienced Grief Services team which consists of licensed counselors, social workers and trained volunteers who offer one-on-one and family grief counseling, grief groups and grief resources both in person and virtually. There is no fee for these services thanks to generous donors.
The Luminary Walk is a community event and NOT limited to families served by Unity Hospice. Everyone in Northeast Wisconsin is invited to attend and help raise funds in support of this new center and its dedicated grief support programs. Walk participants are encouraged to create their own fundraising pages and campaigns by utilizing the fundraising tools easily accessible on Unity’s website at unityhospice.org/luminarywalk. Proceeds raised will ensure anyone in Northeast Wisconsin who is in need of professional grief counseling or education has access to find hope and share experiences – all at no cost to them.
