Introducing…MISS Foundation of California - Huntington Beach Chapter!

The International support system for families living with the worst pain imaginable…The Death of a Child... has begun yet another chapter. Located in Huntington Beach, California, the Regional Director of Operations, Katie Hodge, has begun facilitating her own group.

No one on this earth should have to experience the death of his or her child, but if it happens, we are here for you. Regardless of how your precious baby has died; miscarriage, stillbirth, drowning, accident, illness or disease, you are welcome here. It is safe and you will be surrounded by nothing but Love and Understanding from other parents who are living the same Nightmare.

The meetings are scheduled for the First Thursday of Every Month. They will begin between 6:30 and 7:00pm and usually end around 8:30pm. Snacks and Kleenex are provided. There are many books and resources you are able to borrow from the MISS library.

Mailing and Meeting Location: 8161 Taylor Drive, H.B., CA 92646

For any information or for peer support, please call Katie at (714) 585-3614

The MISS Foundation is a non-profit organization begun in order to address the specific grief of the death of a baby or toddler. We are not doctors nor do we claim to “know it all”; we are a community that has been brought together by a single common thread…grief.

And coming soon…
