Lion's Heart Grief Center Startup

Lion's Heart Grief Center is a nonprofit growing from a heartfelt idea that came from a Child Life Specialist and a Pediatric Medical Social Worker, working together in a Children's Hospital in Spokane, WA. These women worked with children and families going through the impossible situation of saying goodbye to their family members for a variety of tragic circumstances. It became apparent that children's grief support needed to be present outside the hospital after the shock of the acute loss, and into their neighborhoods where they could continue their grief work. Many mid-sized and major cities have a dedicated Children's Grief Center, and somehow this has never existed in Spokane. Lion's Heart is answering the call, and envisions becoming the go-to resource center for child and family grief in our region.

As our organization is just beginning, we're fundraising for start up money. Our goal is to start offering age-appropriate grief support groups as well as parenting support in 2024. Your donation would fund facility rentals, art supplies, educational materials, and cover start-up expenses. Thank you for being a part of our vision of supporting grieving families in Spokane!
