ORGANIZATION: Family Centers

  • 51 people are interested

The Den for Grieving Kids provides vital services to families in lower Fairfield County creating a safe environment for children, teens, parents and caregivers to discuss their bereavement issues. On-going supervision and instruction help the facilitators develop their capacity to be a helpful presence to the bereaved.

We offer two types of facilitator positions: the nights of service facilitator and the school based group facilitator. Nights of service facilitators are asked to commit to either a Monday or Wednesday evening schedule (meeting twice a month from 6:00-9:00pm). The evening consists of a pre and post meeting between facilitators and staff to both prepare and debrief about the interaction with participants. If interested, please reach out to Tyler Shanafelt at tshanafelt@familycenters.org

School based group facilitators commit to a weekly schedule of about one hour onsite at their assigned school, with some preparation time required outside of the school visit. Currently there are Den groups taking place in schools in the greater Greenwich/Stamford area. The time for this position varies slightly from week to week so students do not consistently miss the same class. If interested, please reach out to Tyler Shanafelt at tshanafelt@familycenters.org

The Den hosts trainings for new and returning volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a facilitator, please reach out to Tyler Shanafelt at tshanafelt@familycenters.org, to inquire about becoming a Den Facilitator.

About Family Centers

Mission Statement

Family Centers' mission is to empower children, adults, families and communities to realize their potential. Our NAEYC accredited preschools, school-based social work, parental education and adolescent counseling services, give families the resources they need to ensure their children have the bright beginnings they deserve. A comprehensive network of counseling and support services is also instrumental in helping families in crisis work toward a successful resolution. Vocational training, housing resources, counseling and self sufficiency programs also help low-income people and those with long-term mental illness realize their dreams of living independently. Meanwhile, our senior outreach programs encourage lifelong learning, socialization and support.


Family Centers is a private, non-profit organization offering education and human services to children, adults and families living in Lower Fairfield County.

More than 3,000 professionals and trained volunteers work together to provide a wide range of responsive, innovative programs
