Mission


Josie’s Place provides support in a safe and caring environment, to children, teens, and their families in the San Francisco Bay Area who are grieving a death of a family member or friend.

We support familiesthrough education, compassion and understanding as they integrate loss into their lives at their own pace.

Philosophy

Josie’s Place is founded on the belief that all children deserve the opportunity to grieve in a supportive and understanding environment.

We believe that grief is a natural reaction to the loss of a loved one.
We believe that individuals have the inner ability to heal himself/herself.
We believe that the grieving process is unique for each individual, both in terms of intensity and duration.
There is no “right” way to grieve.
We believe that understanding, compassion, caring and acceptance aid families with their grief process.

Josie’s Place is based on the model created by the Dougy Center in Portland, OR.
