Our program evaluation demonstrates a significant increase in protective factors for children and families that help to increase their resiliency in the face of grief and loss – feeling an increased sense of belonging, hopefulness, and family support.

What does this mean?

Your support connects grieving children with others, reducing feelings of isolation.

Your support helps families support kids;
when parents do better, kids do better.

Your support reconnects children and families with joy,  as they imagine a meaningful future after loss.

Your support matters.

Before age 16, 1 in 4 children will experience an adverse childhood experience.

When families arrive at the Center they are in one of the most difficult places imaginable. They have suffered the adverse childhood experience of death, are stressed with uncertainty about the future, and feel alone and in pain. The Center gives them a place to share their grief and to find a way through it.

The Center is... magic.

The magic of the Center is in the relationships, which children and families create with each other and their facilitators, and in you, as your support allows us to serve children and families for as long as needed at no cost to them. Thank you!
