A Parent Like You

Just Enduring’s child loss support program focuses on 1×1 connections with bereaved parents who have experienced a similar loss. We found these connections to be one of the most helpful tools during the child loss grief journey.

“It has been so helpful having someone who completely understands all the pain and suffering and hard situations … just allowing me to say what is in my heart and head and know that she has been there before as well.”

Moira, Daniel’s Mom (A Parent Like You participant)
