We continue to see a rising number of inquiries and have seen a 15% increase in families joining Willow House. To meet the increasing needs of bereaved families in our communities, Willow House is dedicated to expanding and diversifying our programming.

Your tax-deductible gift will help us sustain and increase our impact among youth and their families grieving the death of a loved one.

Grief support means giving another person a chance at life.

1 in 13 children in Illinois will experience the death of a parent or sibling by age 18, compared to 1 in 15 just one year ago.

"What I remember most about those first few years after my mother's death is the crushing loneliness I felt.  At the time, I didn't know a single other person going through what I was - so I hid from everything and everyone.  My father later enrolled me in a grief support group for youth and a few months later I began to feel like I could rejoin my teenage world again.  Grief support means giving a person another chance at life."
-Willow House board member on losing her mother at age 12


You may also be able to double your impact with a match from your employer! Contact your Human Resources department to ask if your company participates in employee matched giving.
