Inland Northwest SIDS/SUID Foundation

No matter how deep your grief and how great your pain, remember that you are not alone. Inland Northwest SIDS Foundation, along with others who have traveled this road before you, are here to help you through the difficult time following the death of your baby.

The Inland Northwest SIDS Foundation offers free support groups for bereaved families who have experienced the death of their baby. We also have trained "Peer Companions" available to talk over the phone or meet with you. To be connected with a Peer Companion, please fill out this form or contact our office at 208-557-4371.

If you would like us to send you a free bereavement packet, please fill out our Bereavement Packet Request Form on the right hand side. We can also help you find bereavement services in your area so if you are interested, please do not hesitate to ask.


Healing Together - Perinatal, Infant and Child Loss Support Group

Every second Tuesday of the Month at 6:30 PM

Support Group Meets at our office at: 1130 North 4th Street Coeur d’Alene, ID 83814

Please join us for this peer-to-peer support group with parents facing infant and pregnancy loss. Our groups are meant to provide support and healing in a group setting, to show that you are not alone in this journey. Whether you’ve just experienced a loss, or you’ve been grieving for years, we welcome you. Our stories might be different, but our compassion and empathy are with you.

  • Support groups are not therapy sessions
  • Open and honest expression is encouraged; this is a place to help enhance coping skills and minimize feelings of isolation
  • Peer-to-peer groups are for expression, interactions with other bereaved parents, or simply for just listening
  • Judgment is not in our vocabulary; validation and acceptance is.
  • Open to any or all (adult) family members. Moms, Dads, Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles

Please feel free to call if you would like to meet one on one or if you have questions/concerns. We would be happy to talk with you. 208.557.4371

Share Hope Memorial Garden

A life that touches others goes on forever... The Inland Northwest SIDS Foundation’s Share Hope Memorial Garden is a beautiful and calm oasis located right in the middle of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho at 8th and Gilbert. The garden is a place for the entire community to enjoy a quite moment during the day and a place to remember children gone too soon. The garden is approximately one acre and is resplendent with majestic 100 year old pine trees and native plants and flowers. Share Hope Memorial Garden also features a short walking path along with benches perfect for contemplative thought during busy days. It is truly a place that can be enjoyed by all. Throughout the year, we hold special events here including our World Wide Candle Lighting Ceremony in December. We invite you to purchase a brick in remembrance of a child.
