How It Makes A Difference

Grief journals give one a safe and judgment-free place to explore jumbled thoughts and feelings, to find ways to remember their loved one, and to record their ongoing journey through grief. By providing these items to the kids who come to The Children's Room, you help us offset our operational costs.
