Family Bereavement Support Program
This peer support program is focused on the grief of children and preteens and provides support strategies for parents/guardians.

This program is broken down into three groups:
-Children (6 to 9 years)
-Preteens (10 to 13 years)
-Parents and Guardians: Please stay for the mornings.

This 5-week program provides an opportunity for children to remember, validate and commemorate the death of their loved one with others their own age. Parents and/or Guardians will have the opportunity to talk about issues or concerns they may have with their children and gain new resources and knowledge. Resources & refreshments provided.
