Twenty Years and Counting

City of Pittsburgh Proclamation

For more than twenty years, the Highmark Caring Place has been a safe place where grieving children and their families have been able to find hope and healing in the midst of their grief.

In 1997, the first Caring Place facility was dedicated and a model of support for grieving children was born.

Now the largest grieving center in the nation with four sites across Pennsylvania, the Highmark Caring Place has been called "THE model in the nation for helping grieving children and families," serving thousands of grieving children and adults each year.

Children at the Caring Place learn that they are not alone in their grief, and that there is hope —a light at the end of a very dark tunnel.

After twenty years of serving our children and our families, our communities and our state, through the ongoing commitment of Highmark, programs continue to be offered to all, at no charge to any family who can benefit.

For the past two decades, the Highmark Caring Place has been providing a sanctuary where grieving children and families can mourn what is lost, explore what is left, and discover what is possible.

As we turn toward the future, the Highmark Caring Place aims to continue supporting grieving children and families for the next twenty years and beyond!
