The Children’s Grieving Center in Newburgh is underway again and will continue until the end of the school year. With the need for this type of service growing in our communities, we are happy to announce the Children’s Grieving Center will be available at our Middletown location for those in Sullivan County.
Children often grieve differently from adults. The Grieving Center provides loving support in a safe place where children and their families who have experienced the death of a loved one can share their experience as they move through the healing process. Trained professionals and volunteers lead activities designed to help the grieving process of children. A Bereavement Support Group runs concurrently for parents/guardians at the Newburgh location only. Participation in the Children’s Grieving Center and other bereavement services does not require prior participation with the Hospice program. This program is open to the community at no cost. Go to hospiceoforange.com/bereavement-services for more information.
