Soul Care Project


Eric J. Hall

Welcome to Soul Care Project® ‒ a free online resource offering spiritual and emotional support for anyone in distress due to serious illness ‒ whoever you are, whatever you believe, wherever you are.

Soul Care Project® is for patients and their loved ones, for family caregivers and professional caregivers.

It’s brought to you by HealthCare Chaplaincy NetworkTM, a national nonprofit health care organization that provides professional-grade spiritual care-related services and resources ‒ regardless of religion or beliefs ‒ in hospitals, other health care settings, and online. Since 1961 we’ve been helping people who are coping with the spiritual distress that can arise with serious illness.

Spiritual distress raises painful feelings and big questions such as, “Why is this happening?” “Did God abandon me?” “Is there a God?” “What’s going to happen next?”

Spiritual distress can be grounded in religious belief or practice and maybe not. While many people say they are “religious,” many people say they are “spiritual but not religious.”

We created Soul Care Project® for all, and because it is recognized that healing involves care not only for the body and mind, but the intangible that is commonly called the soul.

We understand that struggling alone can lead to feelings of loneliness, hopeless and despair.

Therefore, we invite you to contact a Counselor for free through this website to connect with a professional who will listen and help. Our Counselors are highly experienced professional health care chaplains who are trained and credentialed to offer spiritual and emotional support to everyone regardless of religion or beliefs.
