We Need Your Help
The Solace Tree is currently doing whatever it takes to continue to be a resource for our community and Northern Nevada during this COVID-19 crisis.
- We are providing Zoom meetings for our current Solace Tree family and doing our best to provide the community and connection and support we always have.
- We are still running our office. Non-COVID losses continue to plague our community. We take calls daily and add new families who have experienced suicide and other loss.
- We are providing workplace support, via Zoom, to those all over Northern Nevada.
- We are working toward our future. We continue to have voice and Zoom calls with National and state networks to prepare for teachers support, university trainings, and other options in the fall. We know people will need us more next year than ever before.
HOWEVER, because we rely on grants, donations, and fundraisers, we are truly desperate for financial support at this time. All of our fundraisers have been canceled. We are still working, and we are asking you to please donate today to help The Solace Tree continue our community support, serving those who need us most.

Have you heard about our Good Grief Project for schools? The GGP is a preventative and community outreach program that meets with students identified at risk or in need. This program has been specifically designed to support children and teens from ages 5- 18 (K- 12) who are grieving a loss or struggling emotionally and mentally.
The parts of the talk that were especially pointed at the situation we had all just experienced was particularly helpful. For people that were on the fence about "talking about death" the philosophy seemed to have more impact when we entered the discussion as it related to the specific family who experienced a loss.
