About the Advisory Councils
Safe Crossings Foundation (SCF) supports grieving children in the most effective ways possible by taking a big-picture approach to analyzing community needs, resources, and gaps in services. As a leader in funding services that help grieving children heal, we are committed to learning and listening to feedback from the youth we serve.
SCF’s Advisory Councils consist of two groups: the Youth Advisory Council and the Young Professionals Advisory Council. The Councils consists of youth and young adults who have lost a parent, sibling, or loved one and are passionate about helping other grieving youth. The Councils’ focus includes, but is not limited to: new grief service proposals, recommendations on funding to fill service gaps, and designing approaches to reach as many grieving children as possible, especially those who would not otherwise find support. There is no cost to apply for or join the Councils.
