Mission and Beliefs

At Lost & Found Grief Center, we provide therapeutic grief support to individuals and families from Springfield and the surrounding counties. Lost & Found 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.

 

Our Mission

Lost & Found Grief Center provides grief support services, at no charge, in a safe and supportive environment for children, young adults, and their families grieving the death of a loved one.

 

Our Beliefs

At Lost & Found Grief Center, we believe that every person deserves the opportunity to grieve in a supportive and understanding environment. Our society often fails to understand or support the needs of those in grief. Lost & Found Grief Center is guided by the following principles:

  • Grief is a natural reaction to death for children as well as adults
  • Within each individual is the natural capacity to heal oneself
  • The duration and intensity of grief are unique for each individual
  • Caring and acceptance assist in the healing process
