Next Step’s Memorial Garden is dedicated as a place to honor and remember children lost to miscarriage, stillbirth and abortion. It is a place of beauty and rest where anyone can visit to mourn, pray, remember, celebrate, and heal.

The Memorial Garden is open to the public at all times through the 3rd Street gate (next to the driveway) at 902 D Avenue in La Grande.
