About Lighthouse 

Adjusting to life after a death is hard to understand, impossible to imagine. With the help of donations like yours, the safe space at Lighthouse gives children and their families the security to express themselves, to have their feelings accepted, validated and to build hope for their future.

For over 20 years, the Lighthouse has been the only agency in the GTA offering open ended peer support groups to grieving children and their families at no cost. We are 95% self funded, so rely on the generosity of our community. Please consider making a donation to help Lighthouse.  In 2020, over 300 participants attended our groups, at a cost of $1250 per participant each year, so fundraising is essential.  

Please ask family and friends to support you on your pledge page.

We are in this together, and as a community we can reassure grieving families that they are not alone. Josie, who attends a Children's Group, shared how being with her virtual support group makes her feel. Read the thanks she recently sent to Lighthouse below and hear from Matthew, Austen and Tiffany about how Lighthouse has helped them by clicking HERE
