Framingham church to host children's grief support group
FRAMINGHAM — The Bertolon Center for Grief & Healing, a program of Care Dimensions, will host a new bereavement support group for children, which will take place at 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays from Feb. 24 through April 13 at Edwards Church, United Church of Christ, 39 Edwards St., Framingham.
The eight-week group is open to children ages 4-12 who are grieving the death of anyone close to them be it a parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt/uncle, cousin or close friend. Children will be divided into two age-appropriate groups and there will also be a concurrent group for parents/guardians on raising grieving children at the same time and location. A complimentary dinner will be served at no cost.
This program is made possible through a Grief Reach grant from the New York Life Foundation. Advance registration is requested by Feb. 17.
