Our Mission is to provide a healing environment through peer support for children, teens, and their families grieving a death.
Our Vision is to continue to expand awareness about the impact of grief and each individual’s ability to build resilience, strength, and hope by acknowledging and working through grief. Through this creative process, we advocate, we educate, we facilitate, we connect, and we thrive.
The following beliefs modeled by the Dougy Center align with our vision:
- Grief is a natural reaction to loss for children, as well as adults
- Within each individual is the natural capacity to heal
- The duration and intensity of grief are unique for each individual
- Caring and acceptance assist in the healing process
