Children’s Grief Awareness Day was created to bring awareness to the needs of grieving children and the benefits of receiving support from others. This day allows for grieving children to receive the support that they need. Learn more about New Hope for Kids’ approach to celebrating Children’s Grief Awareness Day head to the About New Hope for Kids tab.
For this year’s Children’s Grief Awareness Day, our Hope for the Season event will include an evening packed with family-friendly activities, stories of hope and inspiration, opportunities to remember loved ones, and a special musical performance by Matt Shenk.
How to Participate in Hope for the Season
This year’s in-person event will be held on November 19th from 5:30-7:30pm at Cranes Roost Park.

If you can’t join us in person, there are still several ways that you and your family can participate from home!
