In honor of Children's Grief Awareness Day, please help us sustain our FREE services for Minnesota grieving children, teens, and entire families!   

Brighter Days Family Grief Center is an unparalleled family-focused grief center serving Minnesota families since 2017. As the only nonprofit stand-alone Family Grief Center in Minnesota, we provide free grief support resources, programs and services for youth, young adults and adults who are grieving the death or terminal diagnosis of a beloved family member. We believe that every family member must have compassionate and comprehensive support in order to move forward and heal together.

Who are we? We are a team of professionals who believe deeply in comprehensive care for the entire family. We are the lifeline for so many who reach out to us in their time of anguish. We are the trusted partner of hospitals, hospices, schools, community foundations and other non-profits. And....we are parents. Parents who have grieving children, too, and who have experienced the depth of helplessness of not knowing where to turn. Our reputation is built on personal experience, knowledge, dedication and most of all compassion.

Our recent acquisition of Fairview Health’s Youth Grief Services program allows us to provide even greater support for youth and young adults. We are truly honored to be chosen as a well-respected partner in the grief community to give this exceptional 20+ year program a new home. 

Moving into 2022, Brighter Days Family Grief Center will have served over 5,000 individuals in the state of Minnesota. Please DONATE today so that we can provide continual care and support for grieving families during the most heart-wrenching time of their lives. We thank you for helping US help OTHERS! 💙
