Volunteers are the heart and soul of the work we do
Support Group Facilitators
In order to become a support group facilitator, one must first complete our 20-hour Grief Facilitator Training, a comprehensive training that prepares adults to lead grief support groups and includes a training curriculum and suggested activities. 20 continuing education hours (CEUs) are optional through this training, as well.
Family Days & Self-Care Saturday Volunteers
We offer self-care Saturday events and seasonal family days/day camps for grieving children, teens and their families. These are extremely rewarding experiences where volunteers work with families on a series of crafts designed to help them remember those who have died and to care for their grieving hearts. Email Sandy for more information, or register through our listings on Volunteer Match (below).
Event volunteers help in a variety of capacities in preparation for and during our signature annual events – HEALs to the Pavement 5K, The Annual Remembrance Walk and Comfort Food Classic. Various strengths and interests are necessary to help us execute and grow our events in order to support the free programs we offer. Email Abbey if you’re interested in learning more and signing up.
Office volunteers help us with many day-to-day tasks to ensure that we are able to keep everything running smoothly for our staff, clients, and other volunteers. Examples of office volunteer activities include: assisting with mailings, organizing supplies, cleaning, and preparing craft projects for programs. Office work hours are flexible and are needed year-round! Email Anica if you are interested in this type of volunteerism.
