TAPESTRY

 When a parent or close family member dies, children not only struggle emotionally but can also experience social challenges when needs like basic hygiene and clothing take a back-seat in the home.


 TAPESTRY offers parenting and coping skills for families in grief, creative expression activities, budgeting lessons, and tips on dressing for success and confidence. 


Additionally, we offer families a fun shopping spree experience with a fashion expert to teach them how to get the most bang for their buck, feel confident in their choices, and empower them to express their unique style.
