Finding a New Normal

When a death in the family occurs the peer support groups at Lost & Found provide hope to families in the Ozarks. Whether the death occurred because of an illness, accident, suicide, or murder – our staff and volunteers create a supportive environment where sharing feelings and concerns helps facilitate the healing process. Each group is lead by counselors with years of experience and trained volunteer facilitators who are prepared to help our families work through the complex grieving process.

Who can come?

We serve a 18 county area in Southwest Missouri. Our groups are offered at no charge to the following age groups in our community.


Kids who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver are welcome to join our groups. Children are assigned to a group based on their age. We offer services for children in preschool through high school.


Parents or caregivers of kids in our program are welcomed and encouraged to attend parent groups. These meet at the same time their kid’s groups meet, allowing for the entire family to be supported.


Support services are available for adults who do not have children attending group. Please contact the office to learn more.
