Our Story – Surviving Parents was founded by two mothers who were strangers and sadly shared only one thing in common, we had lost our child thru a violent act. We were brought together by the kindness of the detective that handled the cases. A single gesture that pointed out the need for families who have lost a child to support each other. Something we both needed and found in each other. Now we would like to pay that kindness forward with this organization. Our goal is to host activities, counseling meetings, provide emergency funds, scholarships and most importantly support.
Our Mission: To be the voice and face of survival after the tragic loss of a loved one. Compassionately providing support to meet the emotional, spiritual, physical and financial needs of survivors. Creating a network of hope and support to empower survivors and affect positive change for their family and our community.
