Helping children heal

Julia’s Kids Incorporated is a 501(c) (3) organization that provides grief therapy for children and young adults ages 5-18. Through a Healthy Healing Series that consists of Art, Music and Pet Therapy, Exercise/Yoga and Traditional Group sessions with Journaling. Children who have lost a parent or caregiver by death, incarceration or permanent separation learn about the different ways to cope after a loss.

Grief is NOT a disorder, a disease or sign of weakness. It is an emotional , physical and spirtual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to GRIEVE.
