It's crazy how it has been 19 years since my father's death... that's almost 2 decades without his guidance and love. It was a hard journey and I NEED your help to make it a little easier on so many children. 1 in 10 children in LA will experience the death of a parent and they need our support services to learn healthy coping strategies.. let's remind them that even though they experienced a death, our community will never let them feel alone. iA
On Friday, October 10, the Associate Board of OUR HOUSE Grief Support Center will be hosting the 6th annual Night For Hope at Tiato in Santa Monica to raise awareness and funds for grief support services. The mission of OUR HOUSE is to provide the community with grief support services, education, resources, and hope. For 21 years, OUR HOUSE has helped thousands of grieving children, teens, and adults as they embark upon their journeys to hope and healing.
Did you know that 1 in 20 children nationwide will experience the death of a parent before they reach the age of 15? That figure is 1 in 10 in Los Angeles County. Approximately 10,000 adults under the age of 65 experience the death of their spouse or partner annually in Los Angeles, and a vast majority of those grieving do not have access to grief support services.
OUR HOUSE serves nearly 8,000 individuals every year through five core programs: Grief Support Groups for Children & Adults, School-Based Grief Support Groups, Camp Erin-LA, Professional Education, and Community Grief Response.
As a non-profit organization, OUR HOUSE relies on the generosity of individuals like you and me to ensure that they are able to offer essential grief support services within our local community.
