I Love a Grieving Child

Journeys offers year-round grief counseling for children, teens, and their families who are hurting after the death of a loved one. Grieving children can express and process their thoughts and feelings, learn healthy coping skills, and interact with others close in age. This grief counseling program is free and supported by donations from the community.

Professional grief support counselors train the volunteers as they begin their service and are actively involved in each session providing encouragement and support every step of the way.

Volunteers can assist in a variety of roles:

  • Meal Support
  • Child Care
  • Group Co-Leader
  • Greeter
  • Preparation/Set Up

Journeys takes place the 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings of every month, from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. Dinner is provided to the families then children are divided by age for facilitated activities such as art, music, and interaction to share memories and learn how to cope with their forever changed lives.

Becoming a hospice volunteer could be the most rewarding experience of your life. Contact us today to learn more about this unique opportunity.

Description

Originally founded as Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan, Centrica Care Navigators is a nonprofit organization that was created to serve the communities where we live. We focus on you as a whole person - not just your illness or disease - and surround you with a circle of care and compassion for your body, mind, and spirit. We’ve established a long legacy of innovating to provide a better, more comprehensive circle of care for you and your family. During our 40-plus years of caring for our community, we’ve continually expanded our services and reach to serve more of our neighbors at different points in their care journey.

We introduced the first inpatient hospice sites in our region. We are pioneers of delivering palliative care at home. Our adult day services give families vital support and freedom. And we’ll keep striving to improve as medical science and technology advance - all the while staying centered on your needs.

Centrica Care Navigators serves Allegan, Barry, Berrien, Branch, Calhoun, Cass, Eaton, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph, and Van Buren counties.
