Volunteer

Facilitators and greeters provide a safe and supportive environment for children, ages 4-18 years old, and adults to grieve the way they need to grieve. Listen to and validate the feelings, thoughts, and words that are shared during the support groups and letting the participants lead you through their grief journey. NO COUNSELING background is required, just a love for kids!
