The Center Logo


Volunteering at The Center for Grieving Children is an opportunity to give your time and attention to make an important difference in the life of a child, teen, family, and the community.

Our volunteers are our most valuable resource - generous people from the community, supporting families at a difficult and lonely time.

We offer one-hour Volunteer Info Sessions where interested volunteers can learn more about the training to become a Facilitator.

For more information and dates/times of our Volunteer Info sessions. Contact Beth Quinlan (volunteer@cgcmaine.org) Thank you!
