Last week, VERTEX made a monetary donation to the Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas in response to the shooting in Uvalde. Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to serving children affected by the loss of a loved one. This organization, founded in 1997, serves thousands of children, caregivers, and community members every year through ongoing support groups, individual and family counseling, and professional education and training programs. Their mission is to foster healing for grieving children and youth, their families, and the community overall. Unfortunately, the demand for their services has continued to grow, so they have responded by adding, adapting, and enhancing programs to fully meet the needs of children and families living with grief. In a culture that does not talk about grief and bereavement and in a world that might not understand, it is the mission of the Children’s Bereavement Center to offer help during grief for any who need it. The Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas is the sole provider of grief support programs for children through young adulthood in South Texas, and this organization wholeheartedly devotes itself to addressing the bereavement needs of children from every culture and social circumstance to help them heal and move forward.
