In the Darkest of Times

Healing is Possible

You're not alone in your grief.
Let's work together to find connection and healing.

Virtual Camp SHIELD

For anyone who has lost someone they loved.

In conjunction with National Grief Awareness Day, Jacoby's Shield is holding Virtual Camp SHIELD Saturday, August 28, 2021, from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. Camp SHIELD is especially geared towards anyone who is overwhelmed in their grief.

Our Mission

An Issue that Will Always Exist

The mission of Jacoby’s Shield is to help parents and siblings grieving a death find connection and healing. Our vision is that no parent or sibling should be alone in grief. We expect to achieve this vision by helping the entire family unit move through their grief together as one. 

Death is inevitable, and there will always be parents and siblings struggling with the tragic loss of loved ones. We want to ensure that grieving families are not forgotten, and provide them with the preventive programs and individualized services necessary to begin their healing process.
