WinterSpring is a 501(c)(3) not for profit (Tax ID# 93-0998418). We rely on the generosity of individuals, foundations and businesses to keep our hearts and our doors open to hope. Please consider supporting this unique and important work.
WinterSpring offers peer-to-peer group support with trained staff and volunteer facilitators using a companioning model. We also provide compassionate phone support, individual peer support, education, resources and referrals. Our peer-to-peer groups support adults, children, teens, and parents/guardians. It’s through sharing of stories, connecting with others, and learning tools/techniques for healthy grieving that people are able to heal and embrace life again. Research and our experience shows that group support intervention for both children and parents/guardians, as well as education to the parents and other adults in kids’ lives, can lead to healthy grieving and avoid the costs of unresolved grief as children grow to adulthood.
