Any child or teen who has experienced the death of a parent, sibling, close family member or friend.
The age groups include ages 5-18. The groups are individualized and set up as Preschool/Kindergarten, Early Elementary, Late Elementary, Middle School and High School.
The accompanying parent or care-giver is encouraged to attend the parent/adult support group that meets simultaneously. The adult must stay on-site while their child or teen meets in group.
Children’s groups start with an opening circle to introduce themselves and a quick activity. Then they are off to process their grief through play in areas such as; high energy, game room, creative arts, dress up, sand & rice play, books & games, a giant parachute & foam noodles. Before they leave we have a closing circle to finish off the evening.
