Are you kind, empathetic, a good listener and want to support kids through the most challenging time in their lives? Nothing is more difficult to cope with than the loss of a loved one and our program kids really need someone like you! Our goal is to give these children tools to cope with the loss and help increase their resiliency.
Adam's House is a grief education center for children and their families.
During the 12-hour 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.
Our next training opportunity is Feb. 25th, 26th and 27th 2021.
It is a wonderful and fulfilling program, and an inspiration to those lives you are lucky enough to touch!

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.
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.
