SUID Support for the Family Child Care Provider
Confronting the tragedy of infant & child death from the perspective of the family child care provider or center caregiver is a life changing experience. As a provider, we grieve and experience the death on a highly personal level. This website is designed to be a support for the provider/caregiver. The purpose of this site is to allow providers to access resources available to them in Minnesota and empower the grieving provider to reach out to the support groups and resources available to him/her.
