Children's Support Group

Open Hearts Support Group For Kids

As a child, the trauma of losing a loved one can be overwhelming. Confusion, insecurity, depression, anger, and loneliness are just a few of the emotions children often face.

Our new Open Hearts Grief Programs are designed specifically to help children learn to cope with the loss of a parent.

  • For young children, there is the Healing Hearts Story Time held on Thursday, Oct. 18 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. This will be a particularly special event as Peanut The Miniature Horse will be there. Peanut is part of an equine therapy program that is designed to love and joy to those who are suffering.
  • For preteens, the Brave Hearts Support Group give kids a chance to tell their story and listen to others who have also experienced loss. This group will meet on Thursday, Nov. 8 from 5:30 – 7 p.m.*
  • For teens, the Mend-A-Heart Support Group allows older kids to learn and about their grief. This group will meet on Thursday, Sept. 20 and again on Thursday, Dec. 20 from 5:30 – 7 p.m.*
