The goal of Our House is to offer support to those who are going through the process of grieving.

We’ve all experienced it at some point -- the feeling of sadness and loss that comes with the death of a loved one. While grief is a natural reaction, many people find themselves unprepared or unable to deal with it on their own. Our House is a charity that provides support to those who are grieving after a loss. They offer help to people of all ages who are going through the grieving process. Now, HBO has chosen Our House as a topic for the recent documentary film “One Last Hug: Three Days at a Grief Camp.”

“The goal of Our House is to offer support to those who are going through the process of grieving,” said Dr. Mani Zadeh, an Our House board member and otolaryngologist at La Peer Health Systems, a Los Angeles outpatient surgery center that also supports the charity. “Our House also provides grief education, seminars, workshops, and training to members of communities who frequently deal with the grieving.”

Our House Documentary

The documentary was made by director Irene Taylor Brodsky at Camp Erin in Los Angeles. Camp Erin was created by baseball player Jamie Moyer and his wife in honor of a teenage fan who died of cancer.

“Camp Erin is a bereavement camp that is specifically designed to help children between the ages of six and seventeen deal with the death of a family member or friend,” said Dr. Zadeh.

While at Camp Erin, participants engage in a combination of outdoor activities and grief-related events. These events are designed to help campers come to terms with their grief and memorialize the friends or family members they’ve lost.
