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.
An Issue that Will Always Exist
Jacoby’s Shield cannot prevent the events that cause grief. Death is inevitable, and there will always be parents and siblings struggling with the tragic loss of loved ones. However, what we can do is ensure that grieving families are not forgotten, and provide them with the preventive programs and individualized services necessary to begin their healing process.
