Who We Are
Let Grace In is a locally-grown 501c3 non-profit organization on Hawaii’s island of Oahu. We support families after the death of a child for any reason, from the perinatal period through young adulthood. Let Grace In was established on January 11, 2017 by the Gouveia family in honor of their 5-year-old son, Grayson. Our organization provides bereaved families monthly therapeutic events, The Grief Recovery Method educational classes, and Hope Retreats. Our Hope Retreats provide space & time for families to acknowledge their pain together, share their stories, participate in activities that reduce anxiety, memorialize, & promote self care. Our monthly therapeutic events serve as 'mini-retreats' by engaging families in a variety of healing activities and nurturing ongoing relationships with others on the grief journey. Both offer an opportunity to revive health in the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual self while developing meaningful relationships with families who have suffered a similar loss. The Grief Recovery Method educational scholarships are offered by our Certified Grief Recovery Specialist and come from the only evidenced-based Grief Recovery program in the world. The program is an action-based, directed approach to healing from life's deepest heartbreaks.

Our New Children's Book
"My Journey With the Wind" written by Ashley Wolfe & illustrated by Yasmin Jessen
This is the story of one child's magical journey to the realization that their special bond, which seemed lost when their brother died, is actually still present in the love and memories that they shared.
Children are often overlooked when siblings die as the adults in their lives are busy navigating their own grief journeys. Others just aren't sure how to support children in grief. This book will help children and their caregivers have a common language to talk about and express the various feelings of grief together through holistic therapeutic activities found at the end of the story.
