Why a Children’s Grief Centre?
Expanding Access to Our Services
Technology enhancements will improve access to counselling services for children and teens.
Child and Teen Friendly Spaces
Our capital renovation plans will help us to create a child friendly space that feels welcoming and safe for the families that need us.
People Will Know Who to Call
We hear too often ?we didn’t know your services included grief counselling? or ?we didn’t think to call a hospice for grief support?. The Children’s Grief Centre brand will help people find us easily when tragedy strikes.
Meeting a Growing Demand for Our Services
Each year more than 2000 children, teens and parents accessed our services – nearly doubling our clients since 2011! Research suggests there are 12,000 kids in Calgary grieving the death of a parent. That doesn’t include those grieving a sibling, friend, or other family member. Let’s make sure they all get the help they need.
