The WARM Place is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) agency that provides peer-support groups for children and their families after the death of a loved one. Founded in 1989, The WARM Place has companioned over 40,000 children and their families along their grief journey. Our program, led by trained volunteers, provides a safe environment for children to express feelings and emotions as well as the opportunity to meet with children and families who are experiencing situations similar to their own.

In Texas, 1 in 16 children will become bereaved due to the death of a parent or sibling by age 18. That means at least one child in every classroom in Texas will be grieving the death of a parent or sibling."¹

Our mission is to provide year-round grief support services to children ages 3 ½ to 18 and their families, as well as young adults ages 19 to 25, who have experienced the death of a loved one.

Families are never charged a fee for our services, there are no geographical limitations, and no time limits - families are welcome to participate as long as the children are receiving benefit from the program.
