We were honored to join author Tembi Locke as honorary guests at a recent Happy Women Dinner, where OUR HOUSE was the event beneficiary and Ms. Locke spoke candidly about her grief journey and New York Times Best Selling memoir, From Scratch. We were, and still are, deeply moved by Ms. Locke’s OUR HOUSE story, which she shared through a heartfelt endorsement for Camp Erin, where she watched her young daughter share grief and hope with other kids who also were experiencing the death of a parent.
“Our House was a beacon of light and hope at a critical time. They guided my family through a new and challenging time. I am forever grateful for the the valuable grief support resources they provide across the diverse communities of Los Angeles. In times of grief, we can all stand stronger as individuals, families, and neighbors because of the incredible work being done by professionals and generous volunteers at OUR HOUSE.
