Supporting Kidds

The Center for Grieving Children and Their Families

FAMILY EVENTS

Grieving children and families need opportunities to join together for relaxation, celebration and  fun during the process of  healing.  Planned family events at our center help children feel that they are not alone, and they allow children to enjoy each other while participating in fun activities in a safe and supportive environment. Upcoming events are listed below.  You can register by clicking the registration link or by calling 302-235-5544.

BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT

Wednesday, August 30, 2017 from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
 
Going back to school after a death can be a scary and overwhelming time.  Join us for this special one night support group to find ways to manage grief while adjusting to a new school year.  Children will work in small groups with same-aged peers.  Adults will discuss ways to support their children coping with a loss as they return to school.  Open to grieving children ages 5-18 and their caregivers.  

MEMORIALS AND MEMORIES

Memorials & Memories is a special one-night craft night event where families are invited to create a scrapbook page in tribute to a deceased loved one.  Supporting Kidds will supply all the scrapbook supplies and we will invite families to bring a picture to use on the page.  The event will end with the opportunity for everyone to share their creation/memories and we will have a brief memorial tribute.  Children will be invited to lend their artwork to the Grief Awareness Week art exhibit Kidds is hosting at the Delaware Center for Contemporary Arts!
