Support for kids

Healing Little Hearts is a 7-week program for children ages 4-12 and their parents/caregivers. The goal of the program is to help children learn about grief and how to cope when someone in their life dies. It is a supportive space for children to share their experiences of death and grief with their peers.

Children will:

  • Learn about name a wide range of feelings
  • Practice healthy ways of expressing their emotions
  • Share memories about the person who died
  • Develop a sense of community among understanding, grieving peers

Children take part in one of two age-appropriate groups. We recommend any 4-year-olds registered for Healing Little Hearts be attending kindergarten.  

The children’s programs are led by professional therapists and 1-2 trained volunteers.

This program also features a peer-led group for parents and caregivers to help them understand how children mourn and how to help them express their feelings of loss.

Upcoming Groups:

  • Tuesdays: April 16th to May 28th from 5:30-7:00pm
