Healing Hearts was created by grieving parents who themselves needed a haven of love and comfort along with the hope of healing. While we acknowledge that our hearts will never heal after the loss of a child, we want our scars to remind us that we can experience joy alongside sadness.
Together, we support each other in creating a life worth living, for and with our children.
This, and every MIB Agents program, is free of charge, thanks to generous donors who Make it Better.
