We provide a compassionate pathway to healing for grieving children and their families, empowering the community to support them through their unique process.

When someone close to a child dies the intense and often changing emotions they experience can easily overwhelm them. We believe when provided with support and information, children and families facing a death or life-threatening illness can mobilize their own capacities to heal and that a knowledgeable, caring community is an essential aid in the process.
