I Love a Grieving Child

Volunteers guide peer support groups for children who have experienced the loss of someone they love. They work through activities intended to help the children express their emotions, tell their stories and be themselves. Professional grief support counselors train the volunteers as they begin their service and are actively involved each session providing encouragement and support every step of the way.

Journeys takes place two Tuesday evenings every month, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Journeys is a year round program of Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan which offers a safe and supportive environment for parents and young people. The program is free of charge. Journeys is a non-sectarian program open to all.
