ELEVATING HOPE
Renewed Support for the Grieving


Welcome
Death of a parent or child is one of the most tragic situations that can happen to ANY parent or child no matter what age...

Consider the facts:
Research indicates that 1 out of 5 children will experience the death of someone close, & 1 out of 20 children will experience the death of a parent by the age of 15. Children who are not supported in their grief are:

    •    5 times more likely to complete suicide
    •    10 times more likely to engage in substance abuse
    •    20 times more likely to develop behavioral disorders.

Each year, millions of children & adults grieve the death of someone close. These deaths may be from long term illnesses, or may come unexpectedly in the form of automobile accidents, natural disasters, violent crimes, suicides & other tragedies. Survivors on both sides of tragic events suffer a wide range of responses such as: numbness, shock, disorientation, difficulties functioning, fear, blame, anger, shame, regret, confusion, irritability, and even relief.
