Welcome To Kids' Haven:
A Center for Grieving Children
Kids’ Haven: A Center for Grieving Children
is a community based organization dedicated to serving the unique needs of
grieving children and their families through support and education.
The foundation of Kids' Haven's philosophy is built on the beliefs
that grief is a natural reaction to the death of a loved one; within each
person is the capacity to heal; caring and acceptance assist the healing
process; each person grieves in his/her own way and in his/her own time; and
sharing with others in a safe and supportive environment allows children to
learn about grief and to participate fully in their own journey to recovery.
Kids' Haven strives to provide access to free grief support for every grieving child in the Greater Lynchburg, Virginia area.
What's Going On at Kids' Haven
Kids' Haven is looking for support group facilitators to join our volunteer team!
Facilitator training is scheduled for the evenings of November 5th and 12th. Please contact Kids' Haven if you are interested in signing up. For those interested in training, but unable to volunteer the training fee is $50. Training is free for those that will continue on as a volunteer with Kids' Haven.
If you are interested in volunteering with Kids' Haven, becoming a facilitator is a great way to get involved. Kids' Haven offers a grief training that leaves facilitators ready to lead grief support groups with the children attending Kids' Haven. No previous training or experience is required.
Our facilitators are at the core of our program. Once trained these adults work in partnership with another trained facilitator in each of our four age groups. For more information please contact our office by phone or email
