FORT MYERS, Fla. - April 26, 2016 - PRLog -- Valerie's House for Grieving Families, a not-for-profit organization helping children and families work through grief following the death of a loved one, was presented a check for $30,000 by the Wildcat Run Charitable Foundation. The foundation, also known as Wildcat Cares 4 Kids, annually selects a deserving nonprofit that serves children in need in Southwest Florida.

Valerie's House opened January 2016 and is currently serving 52 children and caregivers from Lee, Collier, Charlotte, and Hendry counties. The organization provides a safe, comfortable place for children to share, grieve and heal together following the death of a close family member. Valerie's House is located at 1618 Avalon Place in the historic Dean Park community of downtown Fort Myers, with plans to expand to Naples and Cape Coral.
