Annie's Hope is a community based nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide comprehensive support services for children, teens and their families who are grieving the death of someone significant.

The St. Louis Bereavement Center for Young People, d/b/a Annie’s Hope is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. Our EIN is:  43-1801433.  It is our goal to be the "go to" bereavement center focused solely on providing the most comprehensive services to meet the needs of grieving children, adolescents and their families in the greater St. Louis region.

What's Happening?

As 2014 comes to a close and we celebrate the holidays with those we love, yet grieve others who cannot be with us, remember the

grieving kids of Annie's Hope need you.

Please consider a year-end gift of compassion for the youngest of mourners.

Children's Grief Awareness!
