Now More Than Ever

They Need Your Help

As you can imagine, our 402 WARM Place children and their families have been feeling especially isolated and lonely during these months of physical distancing and cancelled plans. With COVID-19 directly affecting our community, we are seeing a significant impact on all of our families. Whether it is financial stress, disrupted routines, not not being able to say goodbye to a loved one, anxiety about potential illness, or the thought of losing another loved one, our families need us as much as they ever have.

 

The reality is that their grief hasn’t stopped because of a global pandemic—but neither has the support they receive from The WARM Place. Thanks to you, we have continued providing critical support to these families on their grief journeys.

 

Will you help us continue providing the support these grieving children and their families need?

How We're Staying Connected

Curbside Activity Pickups

Group Directors have been hosting Curbside Activity Pickups at The WARM Place on a monthly basis for our WARM Place families. Activity bags include a variety of age-appropriate activities for families to try together at home. Our hope is that these activities may bring a small piece of TWP to their homes.

Drive-Thru Family Nights

We have enjoyed hosting Drive-Thru Family Nights since May this year. Each Family Night has its own theme, and families can pick up fun activities to try at home or join in on interactive games, right from the seat of their cars. We look forward to hosting three more Drive-Thru Family Nights this fall!

Virtual Family Connections

Virtual Family Connections provide  families an opportunity to connect with each other and honor their loved ones. These sessions meet once a week for three weeks. During this time, families are able to talk about their loved ones and participate in discussion questions led by Group Directors.

Email and Phone Support

Since March, Group Directors have sent 165 emails and taken over 1,175 calls in an effort to continue providing support to our WARM Place families and community. These emails include individual support as well as monthly at-home activities that help facilitate growth in grief journeys.
