The average cost of the retreat experience per participant is $3,000. Hosting each retreat is costly, however we are committed to making retreats available to participants free of charge.
Going through the death of a child is often an isolating experience. Even for those fortunate enough to have a network of support, it is an all encompassing, overwhelming life changing event forcing parents to re-evaluate their lives, their identities, and what is important to them.
An integral part of the retreat experience is releasing all expectations, worries and burdens to feel the love and support of a greater community. Many parents have financial struggles resulting directly from the death of their child (medical bills, loss of wages, job loss, etc) and therefore do not have the means to pay for a retreat. Our objective is to create a healing and joy filled week for parents that isn’t clouded by financial concerns.
“The generosity of those who donated their time, talents, and services was ASTOUNDING. Every day we were surprised. Every detail was thought of, every need provided for and we didn’t have to spend a dime if we didn’t want to.” –Vienne’s Mom
