It has been two years since Olivia’s House, a grief and loss center for children, opened their doors and hearts to the town of Hanover, PA.  Since that time, they have served over 50 families and a total of 62 children through their “Hearts Can Heal” program.  As a non-profit organization, they are not able to do all that they do without the support of many generous donors.  Yazoo Mills will become a Mortgage Angel for the second time, donating $1,500 to Olivia’s House in Hanover for the month of November 2016.

The Hanover location is located at 101 Baltimore Street and is a 15-room facility which serves to meet children’s grief and loss needs in the greater Hanover community.  Olivia’s
House offers a variety of no-cost programs and services to meet the many needs of grieving families such as Pre-Death Support, Peer Support Programs, WINGS – Social Support, Lending Library, Educational Support, Professional Adjunct Services, and Pet Loss Services.

Our donation and support will play an integral role in helping sustain central Pennsylvania and northern Maryland’s premier grief and loss center for children.

Yazoo Mills not only cares about our own employees, but also about the communities where we all live and work.  Through our sponsorship of local community organizations and charities, Yazoo and its employees are making a difference in neighborhoods and communities across Central Pennsylvania.  Recently, Yazoo Mills became a Mortgage Angel for Olivia’s House: A Grief and Loss Center for Children.

James Poster, Development Director at Olivia’s House, said “One year ago, Olivia’s House opened a new center in downtown Hanover, PA and is providing education and support for children and their families after the loss of a family member, close friend, and even pets.  In addition to their educational and peer support programs, the services at the new Olivia’s House Hanover include a public lending library of grief and loss resources, pre-death support, trauma services, and professional mental health counseling referrals.

Poster continues to say “Olivia’s House is very thankful for Yazoo Mills’ continued support of our mission by being our June 2015 Mortgage Angel.  As a non-profit, our needs are many, starting with the newly renovated center.  The mortgage is a very large financial responsibility each month.  Olivia’s House seeks “Mortgage Angels” to help cover these monthly payments.  The support from the Mortgage Angels help Olivia’s House to focus on the needs of grieving children in the community instead of worrying how to keep their doors open.”
