Two Daughters Foundation is seeking an empathetic, personable, and organized individual to help facilitate peer grief support groups in the Willamette Valley. Two Daughters Foundation's peer grief support groups are available to young adults (ages 18-39) who are navigating the diagnosis, treatment, or loss of a parent with serious illness. We offer two different support groups:

1) a Peer Bereavement Support Group: for young adults who have lost a parent to serious illness (e.g. cancer, kidney disease, heart disease, cirrhosis, etc.)

2) a Navigating Parental Illness as a Young Adult Peer Support Group: for young adults who currently have a parent in treatment or hospice for serious illness

Facilitators are not required to have a professional background in mental health care. Facilitators are required to have an understanding of the grieving process, whether personal or professional, and have some experience in facilitation.

Mission Statement

Two Daughters Foundation aims to support the mental health of teens and young adults facing the diagnosis, treatment, or loss of a parent with serious illness by providing spaces for conversation and connection through peer grief support groups, informative resources on mental health care and grief support, and resources to help young people and their loved ones access mental health care and grief support. Created by two sisters that lost their mom early in life to cancer, Two Daughters Foundation hopes to become a well-known safe space where young people can process their grief and move forward with empathy, compassion, and a desire to make a positive impact in others’ lives.

Description

Two Daughters Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization currently based in Sacramento, California. Peer grief support groups are currently offered in Sacramento, including a Peer Bereavement Support Group and a Navigating Parental Illness as a Young Adult Peer Support Group. The Two Daughters Foundation website offers informative blog content on grief, mental health care, and disease prevention. The website also offers a Grief Support Locator that pinpoints grief support resources for all age groups and situations, to facilitate access to grief support for anyone seeking it out.

One of our goals is to expand our peer support resources to new communities across the country. Our specific goal for the next year is to bring a peer grief support group to the Willamette Valley in Oregon. With each new community we establish groups in, we need a dedicated and empathetic facilitator to help lead meetings and create a comfortable space for conversation. Reach out to volunteer@twodaughtersfoundation.org if you're interested or would like more information!

We are also looking for passionate writers to contribute blog content. Our blog covers a broad range of topics and includes a variety of content, so reach out to volunteer@twodaughtersfoundation.org with your idea (whether it's your story, a collection of poems, a summary of recent research, etc)!
