We are so pleased to announce Morgan Toriello of Westfield has joined the Board of Trustees at Imagine, A Center for Coping with Loss in Mountainside.
Executive Director Mary Robinson says, “The most important thing a grieving child needs is the active presence of at least one, preferably more, caring, healthy, and functional adults in their lives who understands that when a child has a loss they need support.” This program will teach you how to be that presence in the life of a grieving child or youth.
Working with Imagine, Family Promise developed Living with Loss, Healing from Homelessness, a curriculum to equip children, teen, and adult Family Promise guests, volunteers, Affiliate staff, and community members with the skills they need to process the loss associated with homelessness and to support those who are grieving.
