The Mansfield, CT, Youth Service Bureau, in conjunction with local volunteers, will be offering a grief group for children and families which will run for five consecutive weeks (Sunday evenings, from 5:30 to 7:00). Grief Matters is designed to create a sense of community for children and their families to learn and gain support from others who are experiencing similar situations. A parent or other adult is required to attend the group with the child. There is no charge for this group, and a light dinner will be provided.
Professional volunteers from the community are contributing their expertise to this program. The group is open to families who have lost loved ones.
