Grief Support

The loss of a loved one is a journey along life’s path. With it comes a variety of emotions, challenges, and changes. Each person’s way of grieving is different. Their journey may be influenced by many factors including age, personality, relationship with the deceased, personal understanding of grief and regret. No matter what the grief process looks like, each person finds a way to cope with the loss of a loved one. Our counselors guide individuals, families and groups through this journey by providing compassionate support. Vista Hospice also offers a variety of support groups held in Flagstaff, Sedona and William

Hodgepodge Thrift Store

The Hodgepodge is a distinctive thrift store that offers a huge variety of quality pre-owned and new items for sale. The Hodgepodge is much more than just another thrift store.  All of our proceeds benefit the compassionate services provided by Vista Hospice to the communities of northern Arizona.

More highly specialized items can be found on eBay.
