Raising a child or teen is hard work.

Caring for youth who have experience grief, trauma, and/or loss is even more complex, but with the proper tools and support, it can feel much more manageable. We would love to support the caregivers in your community through our Caregiver Workshops. We offer the following topics, but are happy to tailor any workshop to meet the needs of the adults in your community.
