Supporting Children Coping with Loss

Imagine, A Center for Coping with Loss is working to create grief informed communities where those who are grieving will be surrounded by family, friends, neighbors, teachers, coaches and others who are able to provide support following a loss. We have several upcoming community workshops that will be offered for free to the public as part of this effort. Below you’ll find our upcoming workshop topics and links to register. We hope you’ll join us in our effort to create grief informed communities where no one grieves alone.
