CHILDREN'S GRIEF DOES NOT STOP BECAUSE OF A GLOBAL PANDEMIC —

AND NEITHER CAN THE CRITICAL SUPPORT THEY RECEIVE FROM THE WARM PLACE.

family

The COVID pandemic may have stopped us from having our annual fall fundraiser, but it has not stopped children’s grief, and it will not stop us from providing hope.

Will you help us raise $150,000, so that we can continue providing hope and healing during these uncertain times? We only need $7,196 to reach our goal!

“THE WARM PLACE IS LIFE CHANGING. BECAUSE WHEN YOU FEEL SAD ONE DAY, AND YOU REALLY WANT TO CHANGE THAT FEELING, YOU CAN COME TO THE WARM PLACE, AND IT’S LIFE CHANGING FOR YOUR FEELINGS.” -WEST, 9

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 one more Drive-Thru Family Night in December!

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.

SAFE RETURN TO IN-PERSON GRIEF SUPPORT GROUPS

In October, we welcomed our WARM Place families back to in-person grief support groups. We have implemented several safety protocols including physical distancing, temperature checks, and masks. We are so excited to be back together where we can continue to honor and remember our loved ones.

“EVEN THROUGH THE WHOLE COVID TRIAL, THE WARM PLACE HAS SENT EMAILS AND DONE DRIVE-BY ACTIVITY PICKUPS, SO WE’VE STILL BEEN ABLE TO DO OUR WARM PLACE ACTIVITIES.” -COURTNEY FARLEY
