Soaring Spirits International

Soaring Spirits has one goal; to connect widowed people with each other. As an organization, our leaders have personally experienced the power of the words, “Me, too.” We have felt the relief of being understood by another widowed person. We have laughed, and cried, with our widowed community. We have witnessed the transformation that having access to hope makes for someone whose life has been altered by death. Through our unique programs, we prove to widowed people, from all walks of life, that they are not alone. Our innovative, life-affirming events, groups, and on-line programs provide vital access to hope for widowed people everywhere; hope for the moment, as well as hope for the future.  (Read More...)

String of Pearls was created to provide a nurturing and safe place for families as they navigate the path following a fatal prenatal diagnosis that will result in the death of their baby prior to, or shortly after birth.

Rainbows

In 1983, three Chicago-area private schools piloted the Rainbows curriculum. Over the next 30 years, this grass roots program expanded throughout the United States and into 11 countries, serving over three million youth. For three decades, Rainbows has sustained children and families in their tragedy through peer-support group programs and services. These programs are strategically designed to address the social and emotional well-being of youth and their family after a life-altering loss or traumatic event such as divorcing parents or the death or absence of a loved one. We partner with schools, faith communities, and other agencies to implement adult-led, peer support groups. We offer interactive, online training for group facilitators and provide age-appropriate curriculum for youth participants. We help children develop problem-solving and coping skills, learn anger management, alleviate depression and anxiety, and reduce emotional pain and suffering.  (Read More...)

The Grief Toolbox

When it comes to dealing with grief, it can be a challenge to find the resources we need to educate ourselves and our loved ones on what is happening and how to best keep going forward. Having been down this road, we want to give back. We want to reach out to those who are earlier on this road. We cannot make your pain go away, nor can we provide answers for you. What we can do is help you to find the tools that you need to work through your grief journey. Thus was born The Grief Toolbox. The Grief Toolbox is an ambitious project. Its goal is to be an all-encompassing place for grief tools: a singular area where a person can find all the resources they need to help them with that grief that neither time nor money can solve. We here at the Grief Toolbox understand that needs change as we go from the raw encompassing pain of the first year to the stark reality of the second year, and then to the growth and reinventing ourselves of the middle years to the acceptance and blessing that now coexists with the pain and love that will always be a part of our life. Grief, in our opinion, falls into two categories: grief that can be solved with time or money, and grief that can not be solved. If you leave your favorite coat on a plane, with time and money you can replace it and the grief will slowly fade. However, with the loss of a loved one - whether a spouse, a parent, a child or a sibling - no time and no amount of money will make this grief go away.  (Read More...)
