A Parent Like You

Connect with bereaved parents who have had a similar child loss experience through Just Enduring’s peer support program. We look at your individual story to connect you with a bereaved parent who has had a similar recent experience. We find a match based on your child’s age and recency of your child’s passing. We aim to match you with someone who will best understand your thoughts and feelings. 


Support Groups from Other Organizations

In addition to Just Enduring’s Parent Like You program to connect with a similar parent, we offer a list of other organizations and support groups that focus on child loss. These organizations offer a variety of other forms of support, and we strongly encourage that you check them out.
