Nationally ranked care. Another way our love for kids just keeps on growing.

 When you're experiencing a loss... 

Losing a child is hard on everyone, mom, dad, brothers and sisters, aunts, uncles and grandparents. Feeling bad is normal but that doesn’t make it any less painful.

Here you’ll find some resources to help you and your family through the grief process.


Child Life services

Certified Child Life Specialists are trained to help children, especially siblings, deal with death and dying. Here you will find ways to help your other children or young family members during this time.

Pastoral Care

We all have spiritual needs, especially in times of loss and morning. Through prayer and reflection the Pastoral Care team is practiced at helping families deal with the emotional loss after a child has passed. They can also reach out to your own pastor, rabbi, imam or priest should you and your family desire/require that.


Everyone grieves and heals differently. Here you will find different books, articles, poems and other resources that can help you and your family cope with the loss of a loved one.

Support Groups

Everyone grieves and heals differently and at different times. There are many support group options for families in different situations, locations, etc. It’s important to find what works best for you and your family, even if it means checking out a couple of groups.
