|The mission of the Children's Bereavement Center® is to restore a sense of hope for the future to children and families who have lost a loved one.|
After the death of a significant loved one, life is never the same. Our goal at the Children's Bereavement Center (CBC) is to enable children and families to acknowledge change, adjust and integrate loss with healthful grief and mourning.
The Children's Bereavement Center provides Peer Support Groups for children, teens and young adults (elementary through college age), as well as adult caregivers who are grieving the death of a loved one. Groups are open to anyone who has lost a loved one as a result of illness, accident, suicide, or homicide. Losses can be recent or in years past. All Peer Support Groups are free of charge.
Concurrent education and peer support groups are provided for parents, caregivers, and any other adult who plays a significant role in the child's life. These groups enable adults to better understand the bereavement process through the eyes of their children as well as offering an opportunity to share their own experiences and help normalize the experience for themselves and their family.
The CBC, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation, is a comprehensive, multicultural, community-based, bereavement support, education, and resource center. The CBC extends supportive services, education and resources to families, caregivers, schools and the community. The CBC promotes research based principles, that grieving is a normal, natural process and that people have the ability to heal from their loss at their own unique pace and in their own style. This process is enhanced within a caring, relaxed, and accepting environment.
CBC Peer Support Groups allow Participants to gain a better understanding of their own experience and learn to empathize with one another, contributing to self-esteem, trust and hope for the future.
