Lighthouse Program for Grieving Children

Community Benefit, Social Service


At Lighthouse You Are Not Alone

Lighthouse offers children, youth, and their families a place to receive free grief support after the death of a loved one, and to connect with others on a similar journey.

Lighthouse support groups are ongoing and open-ended so families can stay with the Lighthouse community for as long as they need, to actively explore their grief with no time limits.

Grieving families need time, space, and support as they try to cope with their pain and readjust to a life forever changed. Lighthouse helps them to understand their grief, acknowledge their pain and allows for the expression of their feelings and exploration of their experiences.



Our Impact

Creating Communities of Caring

Each year, Lighthouse supports over 300 children, youth, and their families as they navigate their grief after a life-altering loss of a parent or sibling. The support they receive at Lighthouse helps them to move forward with hope, knowing that they are connected and are not alone.

In addition to grief support groups, Lighthouse also provides:
  • Education & Training – presentations are offered to corporations, school boards, medical professionals, other agencies and faith communities.
  • Annual Grief Symposium – grief and bereavement workshops provide a forum to learn and collaborate with other professionals.
  • Grief Resources – a lending library of grief-related books is available to Lighthouse families, and informative tip sheets and articles are shared on our website.
  • Multicultural Outreach – we’re focused on providing accessible and equitable support to grieving children through all demographics.
