Orlando Grief Care Project

In response to the tragic loss experienced within the Orlando community on June 12, 2016, the Orlando Grief Care Project was started to provide holistic health services to crisis counselors, first responders, families of victims, and other members of community in need of support in the journey of trauma and healing.

Learn more below about how you can receive or give support so that together, our community can heal from the collective grief experienced in a tragedy of this magnitude.

Your support goes directly to provide holistic care to Central Florida families affected by this tragedy.
