Description and Service Details
Description (Service) Provides supportive care to children and teens aged 4-18 who are facing a life-threatening illness themselves, the life threatening illness of a loved one, or who have experienced the death of a loved one. 
 
Support is offered through age-appropriate activities and education that help the child grieve in a safe and healthy manner while giving them the tools needed for normal, healthy grieving. The program is centered on the unique needs of each child and the focus is to provide one-to-one and group support for children and teens in an environment where they can feel safe to share their feelings.  
 
Visits take place at the child's school, in hospitals, homes or the child-friendly space at the VON office. There is no limit to the number of support sessions.
