Smile Again Ministries

Smile Again Ministries is a 501(c)3 nonprofit ministry, serving families who have lost a child, offering a retreat experience and counseling services to surviving parents and siblings.  Our mission is to help hurting people find peace and hope.


There are three ways that you can help us help hurting families...    

1. Support This Ministry

It costs us about $1,000 per week for a family to stay here, but families are only asked to pay $50 per night. That means we need to raise funds to underwrite the other costs that enable them to stay with us. That's where you come in. Your gifts enable us to give this price break to families who are walking in grief.  

Please consider making a donation to Smile Again Ministries today. Your donations enable us to reach out and help hurting people. Thank you for caring and giving.

DONATE BY CALLING US AT 320-310-8877 and we can allow you to use any credit card to make a donation over the phone.

2. Gift Certificates

If you have a friend who has lost a child and would like to help them come to Whitetail Lodge, you can provide a Gift Certificate for their stay. To find out more, just call or email us.

3. Scholarship Fund

Another way is to donate directly to Smile Again's Scholarship Fund.   This fund enables us to offer significantly reduced rates to struggling families.


Smile Again Ministries is a 501(c)3 nonprofit; that means all donations are tax deductible.
