Listening Hearts is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization.  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.

Donations to 501 (c) (3) organizations are tax deductible. Listening Hearts is managed by an all volunteer staff of officers and board members, therefore, donations are applied to the mission of the organization.
