A safe place for grieving children ages 6 – 12(approximately grades K-6) to express their feelings through play and art, sharing and listening that promotes healing, understanding peers, and activities to remember and commemorate their loss.
Meets every other Wednesday, 6:00 – 7:30 pm in Medford during the school year (September through June). Children can be added to the program at any time during the school year, depending on enrollment numbers. To learn more about how you can help your child, see “How to be with your grieving child.”
Our Children’s Program also provides support to families, which in turn creates a circle of support for the wider community. For example, three years ago five moms came to us feeling completely broken; each had lost her husband and was raising her kids alone. Because of their participation in our Children’s Program, they have bonded, forming a cohesive circle of support. They still attend our Children’s Program and each one has been able to move forward and help others. All are able to pay it forward. We hope to continue this good work and expand our reach to teens in Jackson County who desperately need our help.
