Grief Care

Grief Share

If you have experienced a loss, no matter how far in the past it occurred, grief can be a regular part of your life. We believe that groups and teams can provide the comfort and support we all need. If you are struggling with grief and are involved in a Grace group or team, consider letting your leader know. You can also contact our Pastor on Call Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 317.848.2722. We also recommend Grief Share, which offers resources and a locator for community GriefShare groups.

Counseling Referrals

At Grace, we believe that the most effective and efficient results come from engaging in a variety of healing resources. To that end, we have devised a Pathway of Care:

1. Find a Professional Counselor. We maintain a list of Professional Referrals and Lower Cost Counseling options. If you need help with a counseling recommendation, you can submit a referral request.

Referral Request

2. Assessments. If you would prefer a more in-depth consideration of your circumstance as well as recommendations beyond a counseling referral, you may find an assessment to be helpful. These are offered to Grace attenders only (one per family) and appointments are available on Mondays and Thursdays at 3:00 or 4:30 p.m. We offer two types of assessments:

  • Limited Care Assessment. A one-time office visit with a pastor or Grace Care staff member where you will have the opportunity to describe your situation and the staff member will make recommendations.

  • Full Care Assessment. A personalized plan with questionnaires and inventories that are to be completed before the assessment is scheduled. You will then meet with a Grace Care staff member and they will make recommendations.

Assessment Request
   

3. True Cross/True Shield Partnership. If you have received an assessment and Grace Care recommends professional counseling, you may be eligible for our True Cross/True Shield partnership. In this partnership, the therapist reduces their fee, Grace Care contributes a counseling subsidy and you attend the 180xchange on Friday nights. The result is often an acceleration of your healing and growth as you combine one-on-one counseling with the community education and support of the 180xchange. And, it can result in about a 50% financial savings.
