The Pat Faucett Bereavement Program

Hospice of West Alabama (HOWA) continues to grow and strengthen the services we provide to the community, among which is the Pat Faucett Bereavement Program. This program offers comprehensive bereavement counseling and support services provided by a master’s level clinical social worker with additional training and certification in grief counseling. The Pat Faucett Bereavement Program is available to provide grief support to the West Alabama community free of charge, regardless of whether or not their loved one was cared for by HOWA.

Donna Avant, MSW, LICSW leads our bereavement program. She provides individual, family, and group bereavement counseling to help clients grieve in a healthy manner following the death of a loved one. She works closely with healthcare providers, social workers, clergy, and school guidance counselors. To schedule an appointment please call (205) 523-0101.
