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.

Share Hope Memorial Garden

Our Share Hope Memorial Garden is a tranquil oasis located in the middle of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. This one-acre memorial garden is perfect for contemplative thought during a busy day or remembering loved ones gone too soon. We host several memorial events each year at our garden and maintain the beautiful space for all to enjoy and as a memorial to all children gone too soon.
