An Issue That Will Always Exist
The mission of Jacoby’s Shield is to help parents, grandparents and siblings grieving a death of a child find connection and healing. Our vision is that no parent, grandparent or sibling should be alone in grief. We expect to achieve this vision by helping the entire family unit move through their grief together as one.
Death is inevitable, and there will always be parents and siblings struggling with the tragic loss of loved ones. We want to ensure that grieving families are not forgotten, and provide them with the preventive programs and individualized services necessary to begin their healing process.
