The illness and loss of a child is one of the most difficult things a parent or a family can experience. One of the goals of the Forrest Spence Fund is to connect families with counseling and support groups. If a family loses a child or has a chronically ill child, we refer them to professional counseling and pay 100% of the cost.
The counselors help families in dealing with the stages of grief, coping with the loss, and the impact of the death on their family. This is such an important step in healing for the families in our community.
If you know an individual who could benefit from counseling that is dealing with a loss of a child or has a critically or chronically ill child, please send us an email to referrals [at] forrestspencefund [dot] org
