At Tu Nidito we are dedicated to our mission of creating a community of acceptance, support and understanding regarding children in grief. It is our vision that no child grieves alone. More than 20 years ago, we filled a need in our community by building a successful non-profit agency dedicated to supporting children impacted by serious medical conditions and death. Since then, we have served the needs of our community’s children and have experienced phenomenal growth. In our first year of service we provided support to 12 dying children and their families. Last year, Tu Nidito supported over 800 children from over 350 families.
Tu Nidito is comprised of a team of dedicated individuals from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds. The team is led by a Board of Directors which provides organizational governance, programmatic and financial oversight. Tu Nidito’s board members are community leaders and volunteers with expertise in a variety of fields – including medicine, law, accounting, business and marketing.
Tu Nidito is staffed by a core group of experienced nonprofit and pediatric professionals. The staff is dedicated to delivering quality programs throughout Southern Arizona and ensuring that No Child Grieves Alone.
Volunteers are the backbone of Tu Nidito. This dedicated team completes a comprehensive two day training workshop to equip them with tools to support grieving children and families. Tu Nidito is proud to have over 300 volunteers that serve over 10,000 hours annually.
