Gerard's House is a safe place for grieving children and teenagers where healing happens through acceptance and peer support. Our goal is to help children, teens and families heal when their lives have been changed by a loved one’s death or other significant losses. We support them through natural grieving processes, to enable them to regain hope, stabilize physically and emotionally, and re-engage in their schools, families and lives. A priority is removing barriers to participation for the most vulnerable individuals so that they can receive real help as they grapple with unimaginable losses. We do that through outreach, by providing a mobile unit for home visits, by offering programs in schools and by support children whose families have come from Mexico and Central America.
