WHAT WE DO

IMG950709.jpg

Valerie’s House, Inc. is a non-profit organization devoted to providing children and their families, who have experienced the death of a loved one, a safe place to share and experience support with others who are also grieving, while moving through the healing process. Our mission is to help children and families work through the loss of a loved one together and go on to live fulfilling lives. Our vision is that no child will grieve alone. Learn more.

I love to tell anyone how much Valerie’s House has helped us in this time in our lives. I felt so alone in my grief journey, but ever since I joined you guys, I feel like I can do this, I can make it through this loss and hopefully be stronger one day again.
— Heather and her son, Carson, age 7

HELP AND HEALING ARE ON THE WAY...

Valerie's House programs are designed to give children and families a safe place to share, grieve, and grow. Children, ages three to seventeen, will know other children like them, heal together and learn loss doesn't have to limit their dreams. Valerie's House also supports parents and caregivers as they cope with the loss of a spouse or child. Whether you are a family that needs help, or you are a volunteer or donor who want to share your time, talent, or treasure, your support can help us grow!

THE STORY OF VALERIE'S HOUSE

Valerie’s House is named after Valerie Melvin, a nurse and a mother of two, who was killed in a car accident in Fort Myers in 1987. There were very few resources for Valerie’s family then, and grief support resources are still limited today. That is until Valerie’s oldest daughter, Angela, was inspired to bring this mission to the grieving children and their families in Southwest Florida. Learn more.
