Who We Are
We are a self-help gathering of bereaved mothers from all walks of life. We wish every day that there was not a need for such a group. It does not matter the age of the child, cause of death, or length of time since the child’s death. All bereaved mothers are welcome, as we help each other find ways to carry the pain of loss and the joy of love for our children in the same heart.
To provide a safe shelter for grieving moms by adopting six pillars of core values:
- Compassionate understanding
- Hope for the future
- Empathy through similar experiences
- Nonjudgmental respect
- Lifelong support and encouragement
- Open communication through shared feelings
Listening Hearts is the recognized community of bereaved moms, offering support and a safe haven to moms throughout the grief journey.
