Carson's Village - The Pitch

Carson’s Village

Carson’s Village helps families navigate the journey to healthy grieving after the loss of a loved one

Leadership: Jason Dyke  |  Founded: 2017  |  Focus: Health

 

Carson’s Village provides families with comprehensive bereavement services, including advice on how to choose a funeral home that meets their financial and emotional needs, information on how to plan a service, tools to raise money and resources to get them through the difficult process —all at no charge. We continue to work with those families to get them back to work and to their new normal, helping individuals and families avoid severe depression, unnecessary debt and a prolonged loss of productivity. The Carson’s Village employee benefit program is taking these critical services to the employer, providing resources so employees have the tools to manage their grief in the workplace.
