About Uplift Center for Grieving Children

Location:

3300 Henry Ave, 110, Philadelphia, PA 19124, US

Mission Statement

The mission of The Center is to help children grieving a death to heal and grow through their grief, while strengthening families, communities and professionals’ understanding of how best to respond to their needs.

Description

The Center provides free peer grief support groups for children, teens and their caregivers. Children and teens groups meet every other week for their support group where they participate in discussion, expressive games and creative arts. All of these activities give the participants an opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings, memories and emotions about the person who has died in their family. While the children and teens meet a concurrent caregiver group meets in a separate room. The groups are held after school hours from September to June in East Fall and West Philadelphia.

Caring adult volunteers are trained by The Center and assist with facilitating both the children and caregiver groups.
