History of Children's Grief Center
The Children's Grief Center has served the El Paso area as an incorporated non-profit children's grief support service agency since 1995. The mission of the agency is to promote healing and emotional wellness for grieving children, teens and their families after the loss of a loved one by providing loving support and education.
The Children's Grief Center is the only area agency specializing in and providing grief support services to children 5 to 19 and their surviving parents or guardians in the El Paso area. Our services are unique in that we offer grief support under the guidance of professionals and specially trained volunteer facilitators. Services are provided at the Center and identified schools as we partner with area districts to reach a diverse and underserved community. Our program is culturally responsive and promotes the mental well-being of children and families as they work through their grief journey.
