New Grief Center for Lost and Found Opens

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The ribbon is officially cut on the new grief center for Lost and Found in Springfield.

This 9,000 square foot building on South Glenstone was dedicated Wednesday.
Lost and Found helps families cope with the loss of a loved one. 

The new facility is the result of a capital campaign that began in spring of 2014. 

Nanette Thomas with Lost and Found says one of the unique features are several specialized areas for kids to process their grief.
"A specific art room where kids can grab and have access to all these art materials where they can use them to help process their grief.  We have a sensory room with different modalities to help them process grief and get through their tragedy and loss.  So we have a ball pit and small trampoline. "

The Building Hope campaign raised $2.3-million to help fund the new center.
