Amanda the Panda seeks Group Facilitators to help fulfill its mission of providing hope and healing to individuals and families who have experienced the death of a loved one. With the goal of promoting peer support and connectivity, our Braving Grief support groups work to recognize how grief affects our minds and our bodies. Our Braving Grief series includes specific groups like Traumatic Loss and Little Footprints: Perinatal and Infant Loss. Each activity helps participants identify and accept grief emotions like anger and guilt, learn healthy coping skills, and create rituals to honor loved ones who have died.

Groups are currently being held on a web-based platform and Facilitators will receiving training on how to use the virtual platform and will be paired with a co-facilitator.

Group Facilitator volunteers are required to pass our Virtual Facilitator Training prior to volunteering. If you are interested in volunteering as a Group Facilitator or would like more information, please email us at mmondt@everystep.org

Mission Statement

We empower individuals, support families and strengthen communities.

Description

EveryStep, formerly known as HCI Care Services & Visiting Nurse Services of Iowa, has been offering care and support for Iowans for many decades.

Our roots date back to 1908, when a group of nurses saw the need for public health nursing in Des Moines and founded an organization to fulfill that mission.

Since then, EveryStep has led the charge to address a wide variety of vital community health care and social service needs, offering prenatal support and home visits to new moms, assistance to immigrants and refugees, compassionate hospice and home care services, and grief and loss support.

Today, EveryStep has a strong reputation and a long history of serving vulnerable populations to help them live their best lives. Today, the non-profit’s 30 plus programs, more than 370 employees and nearly 900 volunteers offer care and support to Iowans in 47 counties.
