Programs in Pennsylvania

Family Lives On*
411 Eagleview Blvd, Ste 110
Exton, PA 19341
(610) 458-1690
http://www.familyliveson.org
Family Lives On supports the lifelong emotional wellbeing of children whose mother or father has died. Our Tradition Program provides opportunities for intentional remembering creating a safe haven for grief, communication and celebration. Parents embrace our Tradition Program because it takes place within the context of family life and promotes healing conversations. Family members participate in the tradition independently of Family Lives On volunteers. Children and teens embrace it because they get to select which tradition they want to continue (and are excited about doing so). And, because we facilitate the tradition until the child turns 18, their traditions continue to support family connection and communication and provide opportunities to celebrate a loved one's life story. We serve all children ages 3-18 regardless of race, gender, religion, socioeconomic status, or the cause of the parent's death or illness.
