Community & Resources To Help You Heal

Our Mission:

Helping Parents Heal is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting parents whose children have passed. Through support and resources, we aspire to help individuals become "Shining Light Parents," meaning a shift from a state of emotional heaviness to hopefulness and greater peace of mind. HPH goes a step beyond other groups by allowing the open discussion of spiritual experiences and afterlife evidence in a non-dogmatic way. HPH welcomes everyone regardless of religious or non-religious background and encourages open dialog.

For Parents and Siblings:

Please know that you are not on this road alone.

We understand and we walk the same path. We are grateful that you have found us. This group is for parents who would like to connect with others who have experienced the passing of a child. Siblings are also welcome to join. Our discussions are meant to be uplifting.

Please know that we are a 100% volunteer organization and that we are all simply bereaved parents like all of you. We are all in this together, and we are here to remember our incredible children and to talk about the wonderful signs and validations that they send. Our common goal is to celebrate the lives of our children and to ultimately heal as a group. Sending love to all of you and your beautiful children.♥ photo credits: Rick Wilcoxson
