Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan

I Love a Grieving Child

Volunteers play a major role in helping with the peer support groups for children of all ages. Children who have experienced the loss of someone that they loved and was important in their life. Volunteers help navigate activities intended to help the children express their emotions, tell their stories and be themselves. In an safe and confidential environment.

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.

Journeys takes place the 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings of every month, from 5:30 to 8:30 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.
