Transforming Grief into Hope
Brooke’s Place provides support groups, therapy services and community education to empower children, teens, young adults and their families to thrive in the midst of grief. Experiencing the death of someone significant can be very isolating for children, and their behavior can often times be misinterpreted as something other than an expression of grief. Risks of unaddressed grief in a child includes isolation, substance abuse, depression, poor school performance, aggression, and anxiety.
Because 1 in 7 children will experience the death of a parent, sibling or close loved one by the time they are 20, Brooke’s Place works to create a community where every young person living with grief feels safe, supported and understood during their personal grief journey.
Brooke’s Place is primarily supported through donations and relies on more than 190 volunteers who directly serve our children and families. These generous gifts of time, talent, and treasure, allow us to address the critical needs of grieving young people and their families. Learn how to get involved at www.brookesplace.org/get-involved
