A Little Hope
The National Foundation for Grieving Children, Teens and Families The mission of A Little Hope, Inc. is to help provide grief counseling and bereavement support services to children and teens that have experienced the loss of a parent, sibling or loved one, regardless of the circumstances of the death. The leadership of founding board member and president Richard H. Schimel, Tanhya Vancho, vice president and Amy Liebman Rapp, M.S.Ed., CT along with the support of the Board of Directors, has shaped the groundbreaking direction towards which the foundation has evolved. Prior to the founding of A Little Hope, Inc. – in early 2002 – there was not a single national organization dedicated to raising money to advance the growth of children’s grief support and the expansion of bereavement centers, camps and school outreach programs for grieving children and teens across the United States.

This is an outstanding site for all of those who grieve. Here is their description:
The Open to Hope Mission: Helping people find hope after loss.
Our Vision: To provide an online forum to support people who have experienced loss: to help them cope with their pain, heal their grief and invest in their future.
Website Definition: OpentoHope.com is an online website where people can share inspirational stories of loss and love. We encourage our visitors to read, listen and share their stories of hope and compassion.
The loss of a child thrusts parents into a grief that is the worst pain anyone
must ever endure. Parents need to know that they are not alone and that, with
hope and support, they can put their lives together again.
griefHaven.org provides grieving parents, family members, friends
and professionals information regarding the various types of support currently
available, creates and offers new support tools, and endeavors to make these
resources as readily accessible as possible.
