The Center for Grieving Children is an oasis of loving support for children and families confronting loss, change, and grief when someone close to them dies or is seriously ill. Based in Portland, with an additional service site in Sanford, the Center's peer-support programs and community outreach touch the lives of more than 4,000 people annually. Trained volunteers and the generous support of the local community keep our services free for families. We depend on funding from individuals, businesses, foundations, and United Way.
The Center has a community-oriented work place staffed by 10-12 full- and part-time staff members, and assisted by multiple volunteers and interns in different capacities. It is governed by a 25-member board of directors. To be successful, staff needs to be flexible under pressure, and respond creatively and professionally to changing priorities in a frequently fast-paced environment that depends on the leadership, service, and support of a wide variety of people.
