To provide a place for grieving children, families and friends to find comfort and support. We provide peer services such as support groups and family events as well as offer resource information and referrals for assistance through other agencies as needed.

Cara Zentner was an Auburn resident whose life was cut short on January 29, 2011 due to a tragic accident in her home. She was 36 years old, she left behind 2 young children, and a family that loves and misses her more than words can say. Although Cara’s death has left an emptiness inside that can never be filled, HUGs from Cara will keep her memory alive, help our family and other families that are grieving and, in some small way, give some purpose to Cara’s death. This tragedy has opened our eyes to a great need for such services in this area. We are hoping that we can use what Cara’s death has taught us to help anyone that is affected by grief, cope with their loss.
