Kids' Haven - Welcome

Welcome To Kids' Haven:
A Center for Grieving Children 

Mission Statement:  
Kids’ Haven: A Center for Grieving Children is a community based organization dedicated to serving the unique needs of grieving children and their families through support and education.

The foundation of Kids' Haven's philosophy is built on the beliefs that grief is a natural reaction to the death of a loved one; within each person is the capacity to heal; caring and acceptance assist the healing process; each person grieves in his/her own way and in his/her own time; and sharing with others in a safe and supportive environment allows children to learn about grief and to participate fully in their own journey to recovery.

Our Vision: 
Kids' Haven strives to provide access to free grief support for every grieving child in the Greater Lynchburg, Virginia area.
