SoundCareKids is a support program for families with children who have experienced the death of a significant person in their lives. Groups meet in four six-week sessions each year. When in session, SoundCareKids meets on Thursdays from 6:15-7:45 p.m. Each 90-minute session utilizes age-appropriate activities that are designed to meet the unique needs of grieving children. Pizza is provided for families each week.

Children are placed into groups by age: our Littles group consists of children ages 3-8; our Middles group is for children ages 9-12; our Teens group is for adolescents ages 13-18. While the children are meeting in their groups, the Adult Caregivers meet to discuss what the children are learning and how to help guide the children through their grief. Families come together at the end of each session for a closing ceremony.
The groups are supervised by a Master’s level counselor and are facilitated by volunteers from the community who have been through background checks, have had specialized training, and who have a genuine interest in helping grieving children learn skills to cope with their loss.
Families must register to participate. Please call the SoundCareKids Bereavement Program to request the registration materials and to register for the group.
