Sometimes you just need to talk to someone
Grief counseling is a key tool in helping yourself process a significant loss. However, the cost of grief counseling often is a barrier that prohibits the grieving from seeking out this service.
The 26 Foundation believes that when someone loses a parent during their most formative years of life, the opportunity to process the loss and the emotional ramifications that accompany it with a trained counselor are invaluable. For this reason, we are happy to provide financial support to help you obtain these services.

For when you're not sure who can help
At The 26 Foundation, we understand the importance of finding the right support during times of grief. That's why we've curated a network of compassionate grief therapists who specialize in working with various age groups, from children to young adults.
Our network consists of licensed mental health professionals who have partnered with us to offer specialized grief counseling. While we strive to connect you with understanding and empathetic therapists, it's crucial to do your own research to ensure a good fit for your unique needs.
