Losing a parent
shouldn't mean
losing a childhood.

What We Do

Elizabeth's Smile is a nonprofit empowering people to address grief and build resilience, so that it can be dealt with constructively at different ages and stages of the grief journey. Losing a parent is the most difficult thing a child will face. In fact, the loss of a parent is the number one predictor of problems in school.

Grief is isolating, for both the child and survivng parent, so in creating a community of hope and healing,  we want people to know they're never alone. 

We are building innovative programs to support grieving children, leveraging our careers as entrepreneurs and non-profit leaders.

Grief Guides

These online and print resources help people understand how to handle grief at different ages and stages of a child's life.


Our research shows the community (family, faith leaders, sports coaches, friends etc) don’t have adequate knowledge and struggle to know what to do or say in the sad event a child loses a parent.


Grieving children say they feel “like aliens or outcasts” without support. These guides will help everyone close the gap and feel supported and loved.
