A program for grieving children, teens and their families

The loss of a parent, sibling or caregiver is a devastating experience for a child. Who can they talk to? Who will really listen? Their friends may shy away because they don’t know what to say. It’s also hard to talk to the surviving parent or family member because they are grieving as well.

The Safe Harbor program provides ongoing grief support groups for children, teens and their parents or caregivers. This is a caring environment where they can come for support and understanding. Safe Harbor is offered completely free of charge.

At Safe Harbor, we believe that it is a natural process to grieve after a loss. The duration and intensity of grief is unique for each individual. Support, caring and acceptance from other individuals provides people with a natural capacity to heal.
