Covid-19 Update

The safety, health, and well-being of our Sunrise Center families is our highest priority, and we also believe it is critical to do our part in the global effort to slow the coronavirus pandemic. Please know that we are taking steps as an organization to minimize the risk of transmission between the grieving families we serve and our dedicated volunteers.  

Our office is open should you or anyone in your life need our resources and support. Grieving children and teens may be particularly vulnerable to anxiety and worry during times of uncertainty. Please call at 760-221-6181

Help connect families suffering loss with the support and resources they need to move forward




We are always on the lookout for dedicated volunteers. Our volunteers are extensively trained to facilitate each of our groups, support our mission and most importantly, make our families feel welcome and "at home". Volunteer training for those that would like to join our cause and help the kids with their grief are held on a regular basis.

There are many ways you can help resource our programs. For as little as $10/month or $120/year you can become a Friend of the Foundation. Corporate Sponsorships are available, and one-time donations are always welcome as well.
