The Mission of the Children’s Grief Project is to raise awareness and understanding in relation to the loss children feel following bereavement or separation. The Children’s Grief Project provides grieving children and young people a place and space where they are given the opportunity to look at feelings associated with loss and learn that they are not alone. We aim to help children to overcome the obstacles that keep them from living full lives. In addition, the Children’s Grief Project strives to educate the community that grieving is an important part of life and is essential to an individual’s on-going growth and development.
