The journey through loss and grief is difficult and lonely. Children and adolescents need a safe place to express the grief, anger and fear related to loss—thereby developing important coping skills. Journeys is a bereavement program that works with children and adolescents age 3 through 17 who are affected by the serious illness or death of a loved one.
Our Support Groups
All support groups are facilitated by board-certified art therapists who use art and other creative means to help children express their feelings.
Our support groups include:
As part of Journeys' commitment to the community, a number of special services are available to schools, developmental centers, teachers' groups and community centers. These services range from consultation to educational programs.
A nominal fee is required for Journeys services. No one is ever turned away because of an inability to pay.
Journeys is a not-for-profit program of Valley Hospice. Private donations are important in order to continue this service. Gifts can be made in honor of or as a memorial to a loved one. All contributions are tax deductible. Checks should be made out to the Journeys program.
