For Families

WELCOME! Whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or caring adult; we are here to support you!

Beads of Courage® has many different programs and resources to help encourage you and your family.

Please check out what we have to offer!

Beads of Courage® Flagship Program is designed to support and encourage children, teens and their families coping with serious illness. The program allows children to tell their story using colorful beads that serve as meaningful symbols honoring their courage. Beads of Courage® is in more than 300 children’s hospitals worldwide. Please contact us if you’d like to know about participating hospitals.

While the Beads of Courage® flagship program is in hundreds of hospitals worldwide, we are aware that every hospital may not have access to the program or they may not be able to provide you with all the beads from past experiences. We don’t want you to miss out! We have 2 options to receive Beads of Courage® at home with our “Beads in the Mail Program” and our “Bead for Bead Program“.

 Additional Support

We believe in the power of art, expression, and connection! Our complementary programs help children, teens and their families engage in experiences that promote self-expression and encourage positive coping skills.  Families can participate in these programs by attending virtual sessions hosted by our program team or on your own time by ordering from our Beads of Courage to Give section of the store.

Virtual Support Opportunities
