Full Circle was established in 2008 as a comprehensive grief resource center for children, adults, and their families to find a variety of creative ways to express their grief, such as art, writing, play, crafting, photography, and music.
Often, children do not have the language or communication skills to explain how they are feeling when experiencing grief. Creative arts help children convey their feelings of loss and explore their thoughts and beliefs. Also, because violent or traumatic experiences regularly get recorded in the mind as images or pictures, art can help children recount details of a traumatic loss more effectively than just talking.
Full Circle hosts family groups as well as groups specifically geared towards those effected by lossed from suicide and perinatal loss. Each group is offered free of charge to participants. We rely on donations from fundations, individuals, and fundraising events. We are looking for volunteer to help on a planning committee for a 5K Walk/Run and Fun Run in Spring of 2017 at Henrico's Deep Run Park. Volunteer roles have varied time commitments and skills. Want to join our team? We would love to have you!
