1 in 7 children experiences the death of a parent or sibling before reaching the age of 20.
77% of American children live in families shaped by loss from death, divorce, separation, and abandonment.
We are committed to supporting children and families experiencing grief. We offer a grief peer-support program at no cost to our participants. This program provides a safe place to emotionally heal. Participants progress through the stages of grief guided by trained volunteers, facilitators and with the support of others in their small group.
