Supporting Kidds

The Center for Grieving Children and Their Families

Sponsorship Opportunities

Supporting Kidds is the center for grieving children and their families. Our mission is to provide a compassionate pathway to healing for grieving children and their families, and to empower the community to support them in the grieving process.

In 2013, we helped over 900 grieving children and family members through support groups, therapy, assessments, referrals, and consultations. Full and partial scholarships are available for all of our services to families. We also reached over 6,000 people in 2013 through our community education programs. Our signature events (below) are always well attended. We rely heavily on community volunteers and in 2011 won the Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Award for an agency in the health field. We are located in Hockessin, Delaware, but we are a regional center. We provide services in the community and families come from throughout DE, southern NJ, eastern MD, and southern PA to work with our experts in childhood grief. We work to ensure that no child grieves alone.

Mustaches for Kidds, Fall 2016
This is a five-week mustache growing event, during which our mustache growers encourage their friends to make donations online to support their efforts. The growers and their supporters meet weekly at a local bar. All culminates in the closing party, the Stache Bash, where prizes are awarded and costumes prevail.  We have 75-100 growers who raise over $40,000 from their 700+ gardeners. About 50-100 people attend the weekly events and about 250 attend the Stache Bash.

“Expressions of Grief” Art Exhibit, TBA
Typically held in conjunction with Grief Awareness Week during the first week of November.  The works will showcase feelings related to loss, death, and grief and ways of coping with these feelings. All local schools will be invited to participate.  We expect this event to grow every year and draw community members and families.
