Mission Statement

The Garden ? A Center for Grieving Children and Teens is a non-profit agency providing bereavement support to young people and their families, a place to talk about loss and help parents and guardians learn how to help their children through their grief.

Description

Families come together twice each month. After a brief welcome and introduction, children divide into age-appropriate groups led by a trained facilitator to read books, play games, draw, paint or perform an exercise designed to stimulate a discussion about their loss. Meanwhile, parents and guardians meet separately to talk about children and bereavement, and the issues that surround a grieving family. At the end of each session, children and adults come together to complete a joint activity designed to facilitate family communication about their feelings. The Garden is not a therapy group - it is a support program for children and their families.
