Willow House's mission is to develop and provide supportive services for children, teens, young adults and families who are coping with grief and the death of a loved one, as well as to support schools and communities coping with grief and death.
Willow House is a non-profit organization dedicated to the needs of grieving children and their families. We are recognized as a leader in the field of children’s grief locally and nationally. Peer support group services are provided in four locations, Arlington Heights, Chicago, Libertyville and Riverwoods, including a group for children and families grieving a suicide death.
Since 1998, Willow House has provided direct services to hundreds of families each year including the families of 9/11. Thousands more have been served by community outreach programs that span the entire Chicago region, from the far south suburbs of Chicago to the Wisconsin border and beyond.
Through donations, as well as corporate and foundation support, Willow House services are provided at no cost to our families.
