Our Mission

"Helping children who have lost a parent, loved one, or the support of a person that played an important role in the family."

In the face of loss or parental illness life can become very difficult for children. Sometimes there is much despair, which leads to anger and resentment. At some point though, anxiety, grief, and anger can be turned around to a positive energy that keeps kids pointed in the right direction. Affiliation with an activity or interest builds knowledge and self-worth, thereby promoting personal growth and self control.

Children who have been through adverse conditions related to the illness or loss of a close family member face unique and challenging life. The goal is to find the path to a happy and fulfilling life and build the potential to bring benefits to the community as a productive member of society.

Though our focus is on situations of parental death, illness, or injury, we recognize that loss comes in many forms. Similarly, any person who has played a substantial role in a child's life is considered a supporting member of the family.
