The 4th Annual Pooches & People Picnic is a fundraiser which supports The Bob & Merle Scolnik Healing Center of Harbor Hospice – the only grief and loss center in Muskegon County which offers free grief support (groups and counseling services) to children, teens and adults in our community who are dealing with a loss of any kind.

The Scolnik Healing Center has professionally trained and licensed grief counselors who offer individual and family grief counseling and grief groups at no cost, and also conduct in-services for physician offices, home care agencies, school staff, and other agencies.
