Family and Child Grief Support

Family Grief Support Group

A monthly meeting of fun, learning and support for families with children and teens ages 4-18 who are grieving. Children and teens participate in age-specific groups and engage in creative activities that encourage open discussion, expression and provide valuable education about grief and loss. Parents and guardians participate in an adult group to learn more about how to support grieving children and teens.

The groups are held the first Wednesday of each month from 5:30 to 7:00pm at Old Mill Center for Children and Families, 1650 SW 45th Place, Corvallis, OR

Families must register and complete a brief questionnaire before attending. Call  541.757.9616 to register or for more information.

There is no cost to participate. The groups are supported thanks to generous donors and grants.

Grief and Loss Support in Corvallis, Philomath and Albany Area Schools

Grief is any reaction to a loss and is a normal, natural process.  There are many types of losses that can trigger grief, such as a move, a divorce, the diagnosis of a serious illness, or death.
