Welcome to Henry Ford SandCastles

Henry Ford SandCastles offers grief support to children, teens, and families who have experienced the death of a loved one. We work as a preventative program to help children and teens learn how to grieve and cope with their loss in a constructive and healthy way. Expressing thoughts and emotions in a supportive environment builds self-esteem in children and strengthens their ability to make positive life choices now and as adults.

SandCastles helped me to realize that no matter that happens, I will have someone to talk to about my grief.

Jaden, age 11

SandCastles has helped my family in the grieving process. Without that support, my family probably would not be together.
