Amanda the Panda Family Grief Center

Who We Are

Our Mission is to provide innovative grief support that promote hope and healing to individuals, children and families. No matter who dies, many other lives are touched…an infant, a child, a teenager, a parent, a senior citizen…and there will be grief. Nearly 20 percent of adults have experienced the death of a child, and 22 percent have faced the death of a sibling, relative or close friend before they graduated from high school. Less than half (46%) of the population is aware that a support organization exists to help them through their grief. We help ease the hurt and restore children and families back into the mainstream of their lives – supported, validated, encouraged and empowered to go on.

What We Do

Since 1980, we’ve delivered love and caring through innovative services such as weekend grief camps, support groups, fun days, school visits and holiday support to inspire hope and healing after the death of a loved one.
