Mission Statement

The mission of Willow House is to develop and provide supportive services for children, teens, families, schools and communities who are coping with grief and the death of a loved one.

Description

Willow House exists because when a child experiences the death of a mom, dad, sister or brother they feel lost and alone; their life and family is changed forever. Willow House provides a safe place of hope where it is okay to feel sad and talk about it. It gives kids strength through connection with others so they can move through their grief. We give them back the potential to thrive, not just survive.
