In 2018, Big Brother's Big Sisters of Butler County was our Beneficiary. They received $15,000 for their mission! You can read about them on the 2018 Food Truck Rally Page!
Our History: Rooted in Love…
Out of tragic loss, Companions on a Journey began more than 20 years ago as a way of providing HOPE, STRENGTH, and HEALING to the bereaved children and families of our community. Our mission is to provide HOPE, STRENGTH, and HEALING for the bereaved – one child, one teen, one adult, one family at a time.
We believe you’re never too old or too young to benefit from the compassionate, healing support of community. That’s why we offer a variety of monthly school and community-based support groups to meet each person wherever they are on their grief journey.
When we experience the death of a loved one, our lives often feel as if they’re unraveling. It can be a confusing time, a time filled with a mixture of conflicting and changing emotions. Each person’s grief experience is unique and quite often it can be difficult for friends and family members to fully understand what we’re going through. It’s a tough reality that at the exact time when we need to connect with others the most, connection can often be so very hard.
This is where Companions on a Journey comes in. The journey of grief is not an easy one.
It takes us not to some far-off land, but rather deep inside the depths of ourselves – to our beliefs, our assumptions, our identity, our relationships, and so much more. But, just as storms make trees stronger, you, too, will discover newfound strength as you bravely move forward in your grief - one day, one hour, and sometimes even just one moment at a time.
All are welcome…
One thing you’ll notice about Companions on a Journey is that our work is personal. Everyone who connects with us, whether for a single session or for a lifetime, holds a special place.
We welcome everyone from the young to the old, people from all backgrounds, and those of all religions, identities, and affiliations, without exception. Grief does not discriminate, and neither do we. At COJ, we celebrate differences, while recognizing our shared humanity. Rest assured - you have a place here. All are welcome.
