Hope for grieving children
Kidzcope was founded as a 501(c)3 nonprofit in 2000 as a bereavement support center offering children, teens, and their families lifelong coping skills after the death of a loved one. On July 1, 2018, Kidzcope became part of the Wichita Children’s Home family to meet the ever-growing challenges of grieving children in our community. Operating on a modest budget, Kidzcope has helped more than 5,000 families navigate grief – all at no cost.
How Kidzcope Helps
Mending Lives is an 9-week program offering age-appropriate peer support groups for children and their caregivers. Each group uses a variety of projects to focus on learning about feelings and appropriate ways to express them, followed by finding creative ways to commemorate their loved one.
Tinsel and Tears is an evening in December especially for families who have participated in our program or are currently participating. This intimate event helps families facing the holidays without their loved one.
Community Outreach Programs vary depending on the need of the group. Presentations are available for audiences of all ages, sizes and interests.
Make a Donation
More than 5,000 children and their families have attended Kidzcope since we opened our doors. It costs approximately $135 per person or an average of $500 per family to attend our 9-week Mending Lives program. No family is responsible for this cost. We provide our programming free of charge, which is why your ongoing support is so important.
