Home - Gerard's House
Gerard’s House is your Santa Fe center for grieving kids and families. When a child or teenager experiences the death of a parent or other loved one, we are there with free grief support services and we have been since 1997. Gerard’s House is here for everyone in our community who is grieving. Because so many families experience barriers when they need grief support, we energetically focus on reaching the city’s most vulnerable grieving youth—kids who have immigrated from war-torn and impoverished regions, kids coping with homelessness, and kids who have attempted suicide. Services include 28 weekly peer grief support groups, a mobile unit, suicide-prevention programs, individual sessions, a summer camp, crisis response services, and support for parents/caregivers, all free of charge and bilingual for youth ages 3 – 21 who have experienced life-changing loss, such as the death of a parent or other loved one. We also provide 7 weekly grief support groups for adults in English and Spanish, all free of charge.
