M.I.S.S.ion Statement

There is no more devastating human experience than the death of a child. The trinity of our organization is supported by a core staff of volunteers, families and professionals, who have been touched by the untimely death of an infant, toddler, or young child.

The trinity of our mission begins with immediate and ongoing psychosocial support to the grieving child, parents, and grandparents after the ultimate tragedy- a child family members death. The family unit is at grave risk for long term adverse effects when not properly supported through this horror. The second aspect of our organization is to educate, empower, and support the medical professional affected by this type of tragedy. We offer retreats, conferences, and professional training accredited for ceu/cme. Finally, the MISS Foundation supports medical research targeted to acheiving the long term objectives of our organization. We hope to reduce infant and child mortality rates with research, education, and awareness campaigns.

MISS is committed to the memory of the children who lived, who died, and who continue - even in death - to matter.

We are an all volunteer, nonprofit 501 (c) 3 organization.

For further information call Kara at 206-251-6706.
