Where Children, Teens and Families

learn to grieve and heal from the death of someone close to them


Willow Center for Grieving Children provides support to children, teens and their families who are grieving the death of a loved one.

The program is coordinated by behavioral health professionals and trained volunteers to promote the expression & understanding of grief and loss while decreasing feelings of isolation.

Willow Center is the only organization between Boise and Spokane that is dedicated to serving the needs of grieving children, teens and their families in a free-of-charge, on-going, open-ended, support group format.

Willow Center has provided a place and people to help my daughter navigate her grief from a perspective different than mine - which is sometimes to close and all consuming.

It means a lot that I don't have to try and do it all amidst my own grief.


Willow Center has given my son the ability to have a safe place to talk and engage with other children his age.  It has also helped him to understand that the feelings he has experienced are valid and it is okay to feel and express them.

For me, it has given me a place to talk amongst other parents who understand grieving and raising a grieving child.


My daughter and I started coming to Willow Center when she lost her whole family.  It has been very important for her to make it to her groups at Willow.  It helps her to feel connected with others who have similar experiences.  Willow's volunteers are oh so caring and she feels she belongs and can talk about her mom and little sister.  The crafts she brings home are beautiful and a nice reminder of the good memories. Willow has been life changing for her.  Our family is very thankful!


Willow has made a world of difference for our family.  After just the first meeting my son has opened up and talks to me about his papa (who died) and looks forward to each meeting. I truly believe neither one of us would be grieving in such a positive, healthy way without Willow.  I cannot say enough good things about all of the volunteers.
