Kid's Kits were developed by our agency in the early 1990s and received the National Hospice Organization (NHO) Award of Excellence in 1993. The Love is for Always book set, was written by Terri Smith and illustrated by local artist, Teresa Lyon. Our Kid's Kit includes materials that help children learn to understand and accept terminal illness and death. Each kit contains two children's books, crayons, a teddy bear and a parenting pamphlet.
Kid's Kits are provided to the families of our patients with young children. The books teach children about grief and encourages them to share their grief with others. Kid's Kits are available for purchase to school counselors, pastors, and organizations who work with young children. Please contact our agency for more information.
