There is little to no government funding for community hospice and grief programs. We rely solely on the generous donations of past participants, sponsors, foundations, friends, neighbours and our community to ensure that our grief support services remain accessible and free for the children, youth and families who count on them each year.

About The Nightingale Centre for Grieving Children, Youth, and Families

Since 2019, The Nightingale Centre for Grieving Children, Youth, and Families has been providing support to young people and their families who are grieving, while building a community of courage and hope through shared significant and often sudden loss experiences. More than 300 families in Guelph-Wellington and beyond have been supported through dedicated grief programs, 1:1 family consultation, events, education and training since The Nightingale Centre’s inception.

We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to grieve in a supportive and understanding environment and no family in our community should grieve alone.
