Community Grief Group Parent

"Kate’s Club not only saved them, but it helped saved me. Seeing my children grow and thrive, despite the loss of their baby brother, has been nothing short of amazing! I owe a debt I cannot repay due to the kindness, love, and support of Kate’s Club."

Kate's Club Member

"Before camp or Kate’s Club I would barely talk to anyone about losing my dad and stepmom...I then realized my problem was suppressing my grief. At camp I was able to let it all out and that’s what has guided me since."

Community Grief Group Parent

"I want nothing but the best for my kids. I realized that I can't protect them from all hurt, but at Kate's Club they can express their hurt and sorrow and be comforted by a devoted loving place where it's okay to cry or miss their loved one."

Kate’s Hub

Members' parents and family members are invited to join our online community and learn, share, and connect with others.
