What is Kids Club?

Kids Club is a multi-week evening grief group for children in grades 1-6. The group presents opportunities for children to meet others who are grieving.

Our evening grief groups typically involve 5-10 individuals meeting with 1-2 professional counsellors specializing in helping families with children and teens adjust to changes in their lives when someone close to them has died.

All grief groups begin with all participants, counsellors, and volunteers sharing a prepared dinner before the session commences. Every week, our counsellors explore different grief-related topics through discussion and activities.

  • Topics of discussion in the children’s group may include: exploring the grief process through the lens of children; continued bonds; memory sharing; coping strategies; and fostering resiliency.
  • Kids Club activities may include a bead project, collage, and a memory-sharing night.

About Groups

Why Peer-to-Peer Connection

Grief is how we respond when we experience loss. Grief is complicated, and there is no one way to experience it. Even members of the same family can grieve differently. Connecting with others can reduce the sense of isolation and feeling of loneliness that often come with grief.

Accessible to All

Group fees are on a sliding scale based on family income. No one is refused service because of an inability to pay.
