Seasons Centre for Grieving Children Endowment Fund
Seasons Centre for Grieving Children was founded on the belief that every child deserves to grieve in a supportive and understanding environment.
Peer support groups are offered to children and youth, ages 5-24, who have experienced the death of a parent or sibling, or who are living with a critically ill family member.
Through guided activity the Season Centre provide children and youth with tools to navigate their journey of grief, and an opportunity to connect with others who have shared experience and may understand how they feel.
In addition to peer support groups running from September-June, also offered is Grief Busters Day Camps in July and August.
Support Season Centre so they can continue to provide peer to peer support groups in a non-judgemental, non-discriminatory, safe, home-like atmosphere for children, teens and their families grieving the death of a loved one; supporting them as they regenerate a sense of self and reconstruct their world.
