When children and families face any of life’s stressors, they can feel overwhelmed, whether it’s acute or on-going, due to illness, a disruption in the family, a death or a divorce, a difficult diagnosis or any of life’s speed bumps.
Based on the premise that with crisis comes an opportunity to develop, strengthen and master coping skills, our mission is to train adult professionals, support families and scaffold children so that they may become resilient in the face of loss. We can help in a number of ways.
