Losing a loved one to death is a common but difficult experience in a child’s life. The Compass program offers help to grieving children and teens who are surviving a recent loss.
Compass provides education about children’s grief processes and offers support for grieving children in individual and group settings. Through the program, children learn about their grief and develop strategies that help them work through the process. Parents and other caring adults can develop confidence in supporting children during this difficult time in their lives.
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.
