Bereaved Youth Village

Because it Takes a Village

Welcome to Bereaved Youth Village, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting children who have experienced the loss of a parent at an early age. Our mission is to nurture, support, and connect these children to a village of support as they navigate through their grief journey. We believe it takes a village to raise a child, especially after the loss of a parent.
