We provide individualized child and adolescent grief support in a variety of settings including our campus, in home and school. We work closely with local school systems, community outreach centers, and therapists to provide grief specific care to anyone in need.
We offer a variety of grief groups for children/adolescents and their families in all regions. All grieving children and adolescents are welcome to attend any Compass event regardless of their connection to hospice or ability to pay. Compass is funded through community donations.
While individual and group support can be highly beneficial for children and adolescents working through grief, we know that community support from their peers is at times even more supportive. It’s one thing to hear that your feelings are valid from a professional counselor, but to hear it from a peer can be priceless. We design our programming to include community events that give children and adolescents time to be next to their peers while working through obstacles and navigating difficult emotions.
