Every day families across America experience the agony that accompanies the death of a child.  We help them Smile Again.

Smile Again Ministries (SAM) helps families deal with grief.  Since 1998 SAM has helped several moms and dads and surviving siblings cope with their loss and pain.  Whitetail Lodge - located near Crosslake, Minnesota - is a retreat center for grieving families.  This is a safe place to deal with your shattered emotions.  A place where healing can begin.  It doesn't matter what age your child was when he or she died - we have found the pain suffered by parents is deep no matter how old your child was.  

If you've had a child die, contact us, or visit the Reservations page to schedule a visit.
