We promote an atmosphere of hope and healing where you and your family can learn that your feelings are normal. Sharing stories, feelings and similar experiences with others of the same age in a safe setting allows children and teens to see that they are not alone in their grief. They can safely talk without feeling different or unconnected.
WVFGC Provides Two Programs to Serve Out Community
1) Families with Children
We provide caring support to grieving children, teens and families in a safe and comfortable environment with no cost to families.
After enjoying a provided dinner together, children attend their own age-appropriate group while the parent, grandparent or guardian have their own support group meeting.
2) Community Adult Bereavement Support
Caring support is available to any adult grieving the loss of a loved one (separate group meeting from the family program). The program has an in-person meeting, as well as a Zoom component, that makes it possible for anyone to be able to receive support using an internet device.
