The Lighthouse for Grieving Children

Fundraising goal: $25,000

The Lighthouse for Grieving Children provides free peer support for grieving children, youth, and their families in Halton, Peel and beyond. We offer open-ended, on-going in-person and on-line grief support groups to help children and their families re-adjust after the death of a parent or sibling. We provide a forum for friendship and self-help with others who have experienced a similar loss and develop coping skills after a life-altering death.

The experience of a “life-altering death” changes the entire family and will affect a child’s life from then onwards. Our families find and create a community of understanding, stability, and support.
