As we have been touched by the sudden loss of a child, we want to provide support and comfort to those bereaved families who have experienced a similar loss.
We provide both financial support and direct programs for grief support, including our intensive grief retreats.
Since 2010 the Foundation has hosted Meadowlark Retreats—grief support weekend retreats for mothers and fathers who have suffered the sudden loss of a child. The retreats honor and comfort participants as they learn to cope with their loss, providing much-needed support, compassion and shared wisdom.MORE ON MEADOWLARK RETREATSRETREAT SCHEDULE
The Trevor Wade Perry Sponsorship to Camp Erin was started by his family in 2009 to honor his memory. Trevor was a compassionate young man with a great sense of humor who always had time to listen to others. Trevor realized laughter was medicine for the soul. Despite his youth he had wisdom beyond his years.
You will be just surrounded by love and by grace and by words of assistance and wisdom by fellow moms and the facilitators. It was really invaluable for me. I felt like I was in a cocoon of warmth and acceptance

There really has been nowhere that offers anything like this—where mothers can come together for an intensely sacred, safe weekend that invites them to go into the place of their grief that rarely is seen by anyone.
