Our Programs

At Rett’s Roost, we hope to create a peaceful, empathetic space for families to connect, feel joy again, and heal their hearts.

Our seminal program was started in 2015 with two Positively Healing Retreats for families of childhood cancer survivors. The next year, we added Open to Healing Retreats for bereaved families to the schedule. Each year the number of retreats we were able to offer grew. In 2020, the global pandemic changed everything. We created a bunch of virtual programs and outdoor gatherings for families that still honored our mission of providing a safe and supportive community to cancer and loss families. With the widespread efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine, we were able to safely offer in-person retreats again in the fall of 2021. Read more:
