Calvert Hospice is pleased to offer Journeys, a support group for families. Journeys focuses on helping families heal after the loss of a loved one. Children meet once a week for 8 weeks to participate in age-appropriate support groups that will help them process their grief through creative activities, connect with other children who have similar experiences, and learn healthy ways to grieve their loss. Adult family members will also meet periodically during the eight weeks to learn how to help their children grieve in healthy ways while gaining valuable coping skills for dealing with their own grief.

The group will meet on Wednesdays from September 18 – November 6, 2019 from 6:00 – 7:30 pm at Trinity United Methodist Church in Prince Frederick. The cost is $25 per child with a $75 maximum for families with multiple children. Scholarships are available, so please do not let a lack of funds prevent you from seeking support for your family’s grief. Pre-registration is required.

Applications can be downloaded at: http://calverthospice.org/childrens-programs.

For questions or more information, please contact Jess Foster, MS, CCLS, Children & Teen Bereavement Coordinator for Calvert Hospice at jfoster@calverthospice.org or (410) 535-0892, ext. 2206.
