July 2, 2014

Throughout the month of July, we invite you to participate in a survey to help us improve our bereavement support services. Whether you attend our support group meetings, visit our Facebook page, or simply read our newsletter every few months, we would love to hear from you. You may fill out the anonymous survey here. Thank you for your valuable feedback!


Hope After Loss logo

We are proud to announce that the Hygeia Foundation has a new name:

Hope After Loss

While our name has changed, our mission remains the same: to support the pregnancy and infant loss community. The butterflies in our new logo, which fly upward from loss toward hope, reflect the journey our community travels together.
 
Our programs and services also remain unchanged. Our support groups will continue as scheduled every month, and we hope to see you at our fourth annual Footprints on Our Hearts Walk on October 5, 2014.
 
One thing that has changed, however, is our contact information. Beginning now, please e-mail our staff at the following e-mail addresses:
 
Gillian Eversman, Executive Director
gilliane@hopeafterloss.org
 
Melissa Kish, Program Director
melissak@hopeafterloss.org

Our phone number has also changed: it is now 203-389-7399. Our 800 number is no longer in service.
 
Please update your address book now.
 
** Important note: delivery of some e-mails to our former @hygeiafoundation.org e-mail addresses has been disrupted over this past week, so if you have e-mailed us recently at our former addresses and have not received a response, please re-send your message to our @hopeafterloss.org addresses. We apologize for the inconvenience. **
 
Over the coming weeks, we will roll out a new website at hopeafterloss.org, as well as new brochures and other materials. We ask for your patience and understanding during this time, as you may still receive materials with our former name on them as we transition to our new name.
 
We hope you join us in feeling excited about our new name and this new chapter in our organization’s history. As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. Thank you for being part of the Hope After Loss community.
 
With warm regards,
 
Gillian Eversman
Executive Director
