About Us

VHP is a free grief support program dedicated to helping children and their families to share, grieve, and heal from their losses and is the only non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in the community whose sole mission is dedicated to helping children and families work through the loss of a loved one together, leading them to more fulfilling lives. As the first children’s grief center in Escambia/Santa Rosa Counties, we serve children, ages 5-18, who have had a parent or sibling die, and their families.

Instead of focusing on individualized therapy or counseling, we offer peer-to-peer bi-weekly support groups as many find comfort through others who have also experienced loss and can share similar experiences. Peer-to-peer support allows children to form bonds with both the other children in their support groups and their group leaders, guiding the way for them to navigate the journey of grief, together
