Description of Agency
The death of a parent who leaves behind young children is a traumatic event for the entire family. Adults and children are said to grieve differently: adults generally seek validation for their feelings, while children yearn for a return to ritual, stability and comfort. With that difference in mind, Daddy’s Spirit’s mission is to facilitate positive experiences for children who have lost their fathers; ideally, these are experiences which they shared with their father while he was alive. But these can also include experiences which the child wishes they could have shared with their now-departed father, including activities or hobbies in which the children have become involved after their father’s death. The goal of Daddy’s Spirit is to instill a sense of self-worth and encourage the child and their caregiver(s) to persevere and to ultimately recognize that it’s OK to have fun again and that the child’s dreams do not have to die with the passing of their father, but rather, that honoring their father’s spirit will move them forward in life.
