SLAP’D (Surviving Life After a Parent Dies, SLAPD.com) is a place where teens ages 13-18, or younger with adult supervision, can come together to provide support to each other and find resources to help them throughout the grieving process. This kind of community can truly make the difference when coping with parent loss. SLAP’D strives to be a place where a children can come when they need help answering the questions no one else can answer, and in turn, help them grow into a resource to help others in the future. SLAP’D is a place to preserve and share memories.
CARE is working with SLAP’D on education initiatives for young people who have lost a parent.
