Mission Statement

An organization to honor Maya. We help to provide children and their families with creative ways to express their grief and remember their loved ones.

Description

Ann C. Johnson is the founder of the Maya Johnson Foundation, Inc.in Winter Garden, FL., an organization to honor her daughter that provides children and their families with creative ways to express their grief and remember their loved one. "We present a variety of ways to use creative expression in healing, such as art, writing, play, crafting photography, and music," said Johnson.Children experience many different types of loss that can cause them to grieve. Loss can include but not limited to; the loss of a pet, the loss of a close friend, loss of a parent due to divorce or family member, children grieve for many reasons. Life will teach harsh lessons about life and death, while personal losses closer to home make those lessons a startling reality. In a society that has difficulty dealing with loss, children and adults often need a guide through the maze of thoughts and feelings that such events evoke.
