Mission Statement

Good Grief's mission is to provide unlimited and free support to children, teens, young adults, and families after the death of a mother, father, sister, or brother through peer-support programs, education, and advocacy.

Description

Good Grief provides free peer support to children, teens, young adults, and families after the death of a mom, dad, sister, or brother. Our programs equip grieving families with the support and tools they need to face their grief. We help families develop healthy coping skills, provide a caring environment to process feelings and fears, and create a sense of hopefulness during a very difficult and uncertain time.

In addition to our bi-weekly programs, Good Grief's enrichment programs enhance the quality of our participant's experience. These programs focus on family time, parenting skills, opportunities to explore grief in our summer camps and equine therapy, and physical well-being through outdoor adventures and play. All of our enrichment programs encourage participants to make new friends, find different ways to express grief, spend time remembering the person who died, and discover ways to develop a new sense of normalcy. At the heart of Good Grief, we are a community of people who understand and support one another.

Would you recommend Good Grief?

You cannot argue with the mission of this organization. And I think the organization adds value to the community. But I also think there is an "in-crowd" in terms of the management, donors, & volunteers. Some people get the assignments of their choice while others don't. They say they want feedback but it is met with a head nod, not a robust discussion. I don't think some of the staff doing the work are trained to the capacity that would be more useful. I also don't know why they keep seeking volunteers when there were always too many for assignments available.
