This survey will ask you general questions about what you think bereaved children and teens need and what some of the barriers might be to them getting help. We have made this survey so we can learn more about what grieving children in our community need in order to best leverage our resources. Your answers will be used to inform our planning and decision-making.

Your participation is entirely voluntary and you may choose to skip any question. Your responses will be kept anonymous but not confidential, meaning that we will share some of the responses but we won't share or even collect your name or identifying information. We expect this survey to take you about 15-20 minutes to complete.

If you have any questions, you can contact Safe Crossings Foundation at 206.652.4723 or
