Outreach & Education

Thanks so much and I love seeing the smiling faces of The Sharing Place come to our school. I hear such good reports from the students. - Maggie L., LCSW, Elementary School Counselor

Community Support

In addition to the grief support groups which meet at The Sharing Place, we provide grief support throughout the community.

Through our Outreach program, we partner with interested public schools and community centers to serve at-risk families which would not otherwise have the opportunity to utilize our grief support services. We also provide a Spanish speaking group for grieving families.

Grief support is our passion, and we take great pride in being a resource to those who interact with children affected by grief. Nurses, teachers, and counselors are often the first to know about a child’s grieving situation. We provide educational materials to these professionals on topics such as what resources are available and how grief alters children’s behaviors.

Our experienced outreach staff considers special requests such as hosting custom group sessions, conducting weekly sessions at an elementary school, or meeting with a group of professionals or organization for a one-time speaking engagement. Depending on the request, we may suggest a donation in return for our time and effort.

We currently are partnered with the following school or organizations:

  • Kennedy Junior High School
  • Glendale Middle School
  • Mountain View Elementary
  • Meadowlark Elementary
  • Franklin Elementary
  • Valley Crest Elementary
  • Glendale Community Center – Spanish Speaking Group
