We are looking for bi-lingual volunteers to aid in our "Helping Hearts Heal" program as "FIG's". At Adam's House we refer to this special group of volunteers as a "Friend in Grief." During the 12-hours of training, FIG's will learn about the grieving process, how children deal with it, the trauma a death can cause if it was not dealt with properly, and how you can help children of all ages find a place of comfort in their time of loss. It is a wonderful and fulfilling program, and an inspiration to those lives you are lucky enough to touch!

‚ÄčOur next FIG Training dates are:

Thursday, November 21st 5PM - 8PM

Friday, November 22nd 5PM - 8PM

Saturday, November 23rd 9AM - 3PM

‚ÄčIf you would like to become a FIG, please register here. We look forward to having you join the Adam's House family!

About Adam's House

Location:

241 Coram Ave., Shelton, CT 06484, US

Mission Statement

Adam’s House believes no child should ever grieve alone. Children deserve a supportive and understanding community to learn and explore their feelings of death and loss. All grief journeys are unique. Grief is a natural reaction to a loss of a loved one. Adam’s House will be a supportive partner in a child’s healing process.

Description

Adam’s House offers no-cost peer support education programs. These programs are designed to support a child, 3-18 years of age, through the death of a loved one. At Adam’s House, they learn they will not have to do it alone. Peer support has been studied and considered an effective model of support for grief.

Adam’s House uses a closed-ended education model. A closed group means that once the group members have been interviewed by our staff and cleared by our specialist partners, they begin the program together and end the program together. Families are offered the option of entering a program, but must commit to attending each week’s meeting of the eight-week program.
