Target demographics: parents and grandparents after child loss.
Direct beneficiaries per year: so many grieving parents with our grief and healing retreats.
Geographic areas served: many locations mainly east coast
Programs: Our goal for 2014-2015 is to continue to assist parents who have lost a child to attend our retreats. We can’t do this alone and need sponsors to help us reach our goals. Will you help us meet our goal?
Here is how your gift will impact our retreats: All donations go toward the retreat rental home, Candle lighting ceremony (each parent receives a candle with their child’s photo), a tribute video in memory of our children Gone to Soon, balloon releases, area excursions, workshop materials, handouts, food and much more.
My son was murdered 02/26/12 by somebody he was helping. He left behind 4 daughters and a son that was yet to be born. My son was my life my only child we talked everyday . When he died part of me died also . Everyone thought I was so brave so strong but I just wanted to be with my son. I did not want to live. I met an amazing group of moms that were just like me they were broken. I was invited to the 1st retreat that is where my healing started. At the retreat I got to meet face to face other moms I knew I was no longer alone on this journey. I have formed lifetime friendships with other moms. Now I am helping other parent that are on this journey . This group has saved my live and I am trying to give back. Thank you Shirley and Renee you gave me purpose.
