About Children's Grief Awareness Month
When someone in the home dies, everything in a child's world changes.
Grief is a natural reaction to death for children as well as adults. It is about so much more than sadness. Grieving children walk around carrying their worries like a heavy backpack, waiting for someone to help them unload those feelings. The painful emotions they carry every day is exhausting.
Grief doesn't go away just because you want it to. The opportunity to be in a group with other children who have experienced a loss helps prevent unresolved grief. Lost & Found Grief Center provides grief support services, at no charge, in a safe and supportive environment for children, young adults, and their families grieving the death of a loved one. Every person deserves the opportunity to grieve in a supportive and understanding environment.
IF YOU WISH TO BE A PART OF ACTIVITIES FOR THIS IMPORTANT DAY AND WOULD LIKE IDEAS OR ASSISTANCE, PLEASE CALL LOST & FOUND AT (417) 865-9998.
