Our mission is to bring grieving parents and grieving grandparents together and help them find a purpose to live forward with hope and true meaning while paying tribute to their loved one.
To accomplish our goals as an organization Wings of Hope Living Forward Inc. provides retreats for grieving parents and grieving grandparents; one day workshops for grieving moms, dads, grandparents and siblings to meet and pay tribute to their loved one; summer picnics for grieving parents and their families; and support for parents who create foundations, write books and lobby for rights in memory of their child. Read our reviews from our Gatlinburg Retreat.
We invite you to make this website your personal resource for finding groups, literature and books, a job within the organization or to advertise the services you offer to help grieving parents such as quilt making, memorial jewelry, candle making and other items.
Foundations and charities that have been created to honor a loved one or help fund scholarships, organ transplants, research and other causes are welcome to put a link to their websites on Wings of Hope Living Forward's website. We want to bring the grieving communities together in one convenient place because Together We Can Heal!
Wings of Hope Living Forward Inc. brings grieving parents and grandparents together for three to seven day retreats in beautiful homes that accomodate twenty to fifty people. We are asking for donations to secure our upcoming retreats. The vacation homes have a policy and ask for half the amount at the time of booking and some agents are not willing to work with us while we collect the moneys from our parents. Wings of Hope Living Forward Inc. is in the process of securing our retreat facilities for two more retreats in 2014 and four retreats in 2015. Without the proper funding, it is impossible.
If you know a parent who has lost a child, we are sure you have seen the pain and despair that now controls these grieving parents. Hope is lost and many become only a shell, trying to just survive another day.
Our retreats bring grieving parents together that has suffered the unimaginable nightmare of child loss. When grieving parents attend our retreats they find others who understand child loss and want to share about their children. Hope and strength are renewed and grieving parents find purpose again for their lives as they learn to live forward one day at a time.
We hope you will help us and Donate today. Your donation is 100% tax deductable. Other proceeds from the money donated is used to help provide balloon releases and special ceremonies for the retreats, crafts for workshops, literature, giveaways, and distribution to inform the public about how to treat a grieving parent. Donations also assist greiving parents who can't afford the transportation but who desperately need to attend a retreat.
Please share this site with your friends and family and help us to help grieving parents and grandparents together to find a new normal after child loss. Your donation or purchase is appreciated.
