One in seven children in the United States will experience the death of a loved one by the time they are 20.
In 1984, there were only 4 grief support centers for children in this country. In 1989, The WARM Place was the first of these organizations to open in Texas, and remains the only one in Tarrant county. Since then, over 30,000 children and their families have come through our doors after experiencing the death of a loved one. What they find is a safe place to express emotions, trained volunteers and professional counselors to companion them through their grief process, and other children and families who are experiencing situations similar to their own.
Our mission is to provide year round grief support services to children age 3-1/2 to 18 and their families, as well as young adults age 19-25, who have experienced the death of a loved one.
We never charge a fee, and we never set a time limit, because we believe that
no child should ever have to grieve alone.
