How would you like to be the person who helps us raise $115,000 x 2 ?! The property in Eustis that was donated to us is for sale and we need a buyer! Thanks to currently available matching funds, the sale of this completely renovated property has the potential of raising $230,000 which would move us significantly closer to our goal of purchasing a larger facility for our grief and wish program services and administrative offices.


Men, I need some help over here! As Volunteer Coordinator I am surrounded daily by nothing but women! I can’t complain too much…But for our kids, having more positive male role models in their life is crucial. Many of our children have lost their father and they truly thrive having a male presence around, even if it is just while they are here at the Grief Center.
