Children's Bereavement Center of South Texas (CBCST or The Center) was founded in 1997 with the mission to foster healing for grieving children and youth, their families and the community. The Center's goal is to help children and their caregivers understand the depth of their grief, stabilize and preserve family relationships, and develop healthy coping skills after the death of a loved one. Their goals are:
- Center for Comfort and Consults with Grief Counselors will triage the most complicated cases to a small counseling site where they will have therapists onsite daily; and also to integrate counselors into the schools. Their hope is to have therapy dogs, books for children to take, etc. They will also be training teachers and counselors in the Uvalde schools.
- To create a Children's Bereavement Center location in Uvalde mirroring what they established at Sutherland Springs offering individual counseling, grief camps, and peer support groups for children and parents/caregivers.
