Kara's guiding value is empathy. Every day Kara provides compassion and caring support to children and adults because loss and grief impact everyone.
Kara's vision is to see people of all ages compassionately supported on their journey through grief so they can move toward renewed hope and meaning.
Kara's services are provided primarily by volunteers who have experience in healing from personal loss. With the aid of professional staff and ongoing training,
Kara's volunteers facilitate others' journeys during bereavement of life-threatening illness or loss of a loved one. Kara is supported primarily by tax-deductible donations from individuals (current clients, past clients, supporters), foundations and corporations.
Kara is the Moyer Foundations Camp Erin San Francisco partner.
