The Children and Families Support Group
Children and families healing together through their grief.

The Children and Families Support Group brings together children to heal through their grief.

Parents and Caregivers participate in separate sessions while kids attend their own peer groups. 

  • Children receive a valuable opportunity to learn about grief, explore their confusion, express their feelings, and feel the warmth of compassion, with other kids their age in a structured, well-guided program.
  • Experienced program facilitators guide the groups with kid-friendly lessons and activities, while the children learn to share with each other, learn healthy grieving practices, and bond together as a group.
  • Parents and Caregivers move through their grief together as an adult group, while learning to better supporting their children outside of the group.  
  • Families with multiple kids are welcome and all can attend peer groups that suit their ages.  
  • Children ages 4-18 participate in age-based groups.  Child care is available for children under 3 yrs old.

  • All group programs are FREE OF CHARGE to attendees.
  • For nearly 15 years, children and families have found tremendous results at Healing Hearts!

See what kids and parents/caregivers say about their Children’s Peer Group:

  • “My child talks more openly and uses words about feelings.”

  • “I value that I have a place where others openly care and accept my son.”

  • “This place gave us something no one else was able to, the individual care and attention each of us really needed.”

  • “My child has better listening skills.”

  • “I like it here.  It feels good.”

  • “After I came here I learned I could better talk with my friends about it (my grief), and that was good.”
