Welcome to the Gift List of

The Caring House

When a family member or close friend dies, it is a frightening disruption in the lives of both children and adults. Death changes the way the entire family unit functions. Sometimes our children become “the forgotten mourners.”

The Caring House provides supportive services for children ages 3-18 that are affected by a loved one's serious illness or death. We recognize that grief is a natural reaction to the loss of a loved one - for children as well as adults. Within each of us is the natural capacity to heal. Acceptance and caring can help facilitate the healing process.

At The Caring House, we provide many outlets for children to express and process their grief, including:

- Children helping children grief support groups facilitated by trained professionals (in both Huntsville/Madison schools and at our location on Longwood Drive)
- Physical and creative play
- Art expression
- Sharing and listening
- Creating writing activities
- Learning about the grieving process and what helps
- Animal-assisted activity
- Affirming normalcy of their experience while identifying each situation is individual

The Caring House is a not-for-profit organization and the services are free of charge. We are dependent on Huntsville Hospital Foundation support, corporate and community contributions, as well as donations from churches and families who have benefited from our services. All residents of Madison County are eligible for our services.

All gifts to The Caring House are tax deductible and very much appreciated.
