As the sole provider of grief support programs for children through young adulthood in South Texas, we wholeheartedly devote ourselves to addressing the bereavement needs of children from every culture and social circumstance to help them heal and move forward. We believe that each person’s journey through grief is unique and therefore deserving of a distinctive approach. Our goal is to help children and their caregivers understand the depth of their grief, stabilize and preserve family relationships, and develop healthy coping skills after the death of a loved one.
