Supporting families through the unexpected loss of a child
Give Grief a Voice Project
In speaking with families who have lost young children, we realized how important it is to listen to their story and to assure parents that their little one will be remembered always. Even at various stages of grieving the loss of a child, it can be very difficult to articulate the memories and things that made your child special. The emotional support of providing an outlet and a sense of permanence to the story of who their child was and the process of grieving is immense and powerful.
With these things in mind, we launched a special project in 2019, Give Grief a Voice. We engage professional writers and artists to capture stories of the child and present the family with a unique piece of art as a gift.
