Staff and Program Support
Our wonderful staff is small but mighty. With limited resources, our staff works around the clock to provide the best services possible to so many individuals needing support.
Our Advisory Board includes individuals with expertise in certain key areas related to policy, advocacy, research, and philosophy that relates to our mission.
The Research Committee plays an integral part in studying the effects and outcomes of traumatic grief in an effort to identify treatment options that best serve bereaved individuals.
BEREAVED PARENTS ADVISORY BOARD
The Bereaved Parents Advisory Board is a group of amazing volunteer parents who have had a child (or children) die. They provide significant insight into developing our programs and services that only someone who has experienced this level of traumatic grief can truly understand.
