never forget foundation

     our founding.


The Never Forget Foundation was founded in order to help grieving children cope with loss.  We have found through personal and anecdotal experience that children frequently grieve through activities, and that newly bereave parents may not have the funds to allow for those activities.  We also know from studies that children express through action, and that most grieving children wish to resume "normal" life.  We aim to provide access to constructive activities while bridging the gap between family and support resources.

Helping grieving children.

Alyssa Vidal

If the child can name it, we can help them to enjoy life a little more and grow through their grief!  No matter the age, and no matter when the loss occurred, kids should have the support and the community they need to thrive.

It takes a team of dedicated volunteers to ensure our ability to reach out to as many communities as possible so kids everywhere have access to our free services. We're fortunate to have some of the best dedicating their time, energy, and expertise to our cause.
