Welcome to Lost & Found

At Lost & Found, we provide grief support to individuals and families from Springfield and the surrounding counties. Lost & Found Grief Center works with the bereaved to provide education and support as they travel their journey of grief to find peace, hope, and a new normal as they face life without their deceased loved one.

Who We Serve

We have served over 25 counties across Southwest Missouri. Our groups are offered at no charge to the following age groups in our community.

Youth

Preschoolers through high schoolers, who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver are welcome to join our groups.

Parents

Parents or caregivers of kids meet at the same time their kid’s groups meet, allowing for the entire family to be supported.

Adults

Support services are available for adults who do not have children attending group. Please contact the office to learn more.
