About Us

Serving the San Francisco Bay Area since 1976, Kara provides comprehensive grief support, crisis response and education to individuals and communities facing the difficult realities of death and dying. Serving more than 5000 individuals in 2016, Kara provides a wide breadth of grief support and education services to the community including: individual and group peer support; in-house psychotherapy; on-site crisis intervention; bereavement education and training services; Camp Erin, a bereavement camp for children 6-17 years old; and community events.

Through a time-tested and highly effective peer support model (adopted from the Shanti Model), over 150 Kara volunteers, supervised by a high quality staff, help grieving adults and children understand what they are experiencing and to cope in healthy ways. Kara provides a space where those in grief find deep relief in the company of others who understand.
