Our children’s bereavement program, the Kids’ Circle, provides grief support to the youngest members of our community.
We help children and teens aged 4 through 12 who are experiencing the death of a loved one. Teen Circle is available to clients between 13 and 18 years old.
We offer age-appropriate bereavement support activities and education that help the child grieve while giving them the tools needed for healthy grieving. We focus on the unique needs of each child, providing no-cost group support in an environment where they can feel safe to share their feelings.
Families can choose to have visits take place at the child's school, in hospital, at home or in a child-friendly space at the VON office.
