How Your Support Will Change Lives

At OUR HOUSE, we help grievers navigate the journey from raw grief to reflection, acceptance, and hope. Right now, thousands of grievers across Los Angeles need our support.

Will You Help Them?

there is a grief crisis in los angeles

34,000+Angelenos have died from COVID-19.

The Los Angeles homicide rate increased 31%.
National overdose deaths increased 29%.
Requests for grief support have increased 300% since 2019 and an additional 8% this year alone.

OUR HOUSE cannot meet this surging demand for grief support without your help.

“My husband died during COVID, when the traditions that normally accompany a death were gone. I couldn’t have a funeral. I couldn’t visit him in the hospital. He died alone.

Being in a group of people who had a similar experience—not just the death of a spouse but also grieving during the pandemic, when many of us were isolated and all alone—was a unique and affirming experience for all of us. There were some very heart-wrenching, heartbreaking times, but we also learned to laugh. My group was so supportive and so loving. OUR HOUSE was exactly the community that I needed at that particular time. We were all going through the same thing and feeling alone. We were able to connect and share experiences. We actually call ourselves the “Solo Sisters.” We had our first meeting in person after five months on Zoom, and we were like giddy teenagers! The Solo Sisters have been meeting ever since.

OUR HOUSE has given such an enormous gift to those of us who are left behind. I don’t know what I would have done without the group. I think one thing that OUR HOUSE does is recognize the significance of a human connection. Anybody who participates in it, donates money, volunteers, I can’t thank you enough. ”
