Safe Crossings Children's Grief Program

When someone we love is facing serious illness or death, we may feel lost and alone for awhile. Children especially often need guidance and care. Safe Crossings can help.

Kids and teens need support

Safe Crossings is a program for children who are facing or have experienced the loss of a loved one. We honor the philosophy that each child’s needs are unique. Our Master’s level counselors can provide compassionate and knowledgeable support for grieving children of all ages and their families living in King and South Snohomish Counties.

Safe Crossings is for friends and families and can help provide guidance to help meet the needs of parents, adult caregivers, teens and children. Safe Crossings is also a resource for professionals who seek additional support and guidance to help grieving children in their community.

Safe Crossings is designed to offer a variety of education and support opportunities, including:

  • Phone consultations
  • Grief support groups, activities and workshops
  • A special weekend at Camp Erin®King County summer camp
  • Individual sessions in the office, home, or school setting
  • Written material
