About Julia’s Kids
Feel. Talk. Cope. Grow
Our organization developed this formula for mental wellness after one of our group therapy sessions. After a loss, one has to identify how and what they are FEELing. Once this is established, those feelings should be validated. TALKing to a professional to help through the grieving process has been instrumental in effective grieving. While speaking with a professional, you learn how to COPE using skills to guide you through those feelings/events/trauma. Personal GROWth and healing is the ultimate goal.
We Advocate For Mental Wellness

Our Founder & CEO
My impetus for founding Julia’s Kids Incorporated in 2015 was the sudden death of my friend Julia Bennett. I lost a dear friend, but my heart broke for her three children who were left behind. While mentoring to them, I witnessed hopelessness and depression. We sought professional help from a therapist. This experience exposed me to the transformational power of grief counseling and sadly, how many children in our community desperately need access to it.

What People Are Saying
“In times like these when life is unpredictable, it’s necessary to have these things in order.”
“This is certainly a service i would need. I think our family should be aware of how we would like our children to be raised.”
“Youth Summit was amazing, I was perfect I learned a lot.”
“Hi, Yolanda. Just wanted to take the time to say thanks again. Lisa enjoyed herself on Friday with her group. And she is doing well with her one on one sessions. The office is literally 5 minutes away from our home. Everything is falling into place for her. We definitely see a difference in the pay two weeks. Thank God. I know this process is like baby steps. But I just wanted to thank you for your help. Seeing her somewhat better helps my family also cope with our sadness. Thanks again and God bless!!”

My organization @esstherapyteam have been working alongside @juliaskids for 3 years. This organization services children who have experienced a loss of a parent or guardian by death, incarceration, or permanent separation; by providing grief counseling among other amazing programs. I never imagined my own son would have fallen into this category at such a young age...but here we are. Thank you to the CEO of Julia's Kids for seeing the need our children have after a loss. #ParentingWhileNoire #WidowedAndYoung #Grief #Mourning
