Standing Together - January 2018
After the death of someone important in a child or teen’s life, it can be a bewildering time. We have heard from many youth that they feel alone and that their peers don’t “get it.” Standing Together brings grieving youth together in a safe, supportive environment. Kids, teens and parents meet in small groups with others their own age. They have opportunities to share, engage in creative expression and learn that they aren’t alone.
For information please call 206-749-7691.
