Mother's Day Tea 2021

We cordially invite you to join us for tea and cookies! Your hosts, Aileen and Liz, are bereaved mothers looking to celebrate other mothers during this difficult time of year. This event is not a formal gathering or counseling session but rather a social time to meet with each other in hopes to bring a bit of comfort and connection. If you are able to join us, we will mail you a package of goodies that includes delicious tea and cookies. We will mail the packages on April 26th so please complete your registration by then. If you found this event post after April 26th, you are encouraged to register and join us but your package will likely arrive late 🙂 Please share this invitation with any adult woman who has been affected by a pregnancy, infant or child loss. This can include sisters, aunts, friends, grandmothers, co-workers etc. Please feel free to message Liz 208-557-4371 with any questions. We hope to see you there as we celebrate our special kind of motherhood.

NISSA, 59 Years and Counting

It’s been 59 years since our founders made it their mission to reach out to families who have experienced the death of a child. In those 59 years, we’ve grown, changed a bit, and even expanded our programs to ensure all babies celebrate their first birthday and beyond. In all those years we have never strayed from our original mission, ensuring the journey of child loss is one no one should have to walk alone.

Help Us Save Lives

We receive little state and no federal funding. This means that we rely on the kindness and generosity of our donors, community and local businesses to ensure that the lights are always on and there is always someone to answer the phone, day or night. There are many ways you can help us ensure our mission continues, click below to learn more.
