Most people find it difficult to talk about death. Our mission is to enhance the way we live by fundamentally changing the way we talk about death. Our community partners provide support, services, and education to help you talk about what’s important to you so that you can live well and end well.
“We need to change our culture to re-accept death as part of life.”

We want to fundamentally change the way we talk about death.
“Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”
