BRIDGES is a grief support center serving families with children ages 4 through 18 who have experienced the serious illness of a family member, or the death of a relative or friend. We offer peer support groups for facilitated by trained volunteers.
We offer a support program just for children because they grieve differently than adults. We believe that every family member is entitled to the opportunity to grieve in a supportive, informed and understanding environment. Our hope that the children we serve will reconcile the death, and growth and healing will occur.
Our support groups are age and developmentally appropriate.We use discussion and specifically designed activities to help children through the grieving process.
