Kathy's Place for Hope- A Center for Grieving Children

(813)-875-07
730 South Sterling Ave
Tampa FL 33609

Kathy's Place 4 Hope, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, is a center for grieving children. It is a community of trained volunteers who provide a safe and compassionate place for children to grow through grief and bereavement. Participation in program activities helps children transform themselves and build the means of remembering. While no staff receives compensation and families are not charged for attending, we need support from the community to provide services. Services such as program night, summer camp, consultations to other agencies and maintaining a library depend on donations. While staff members are volunteer based, they adhere to professional standards. These standards are similar to those used for medical privacy. For instance, information about you or your children will be kept confidential.
