Volunteers are at the heart of the work of The Center for Grieving Children. The Center's services are provided at no charge to families at a difficult and lonely time. This is only possible because of the generous support of our community.
Most importantly, they make a positive difference in the life of children, adults and families.
New volunteers are always welcome at the Center. You can learn more about becoming a Peer Support Volunteer Facilitator or Events/Office Opportunities online. All volunteers need to attend a Volunteer Orientation.
In this 1-hour orientation session, you will learn about the Center's history and model of peer support, the Centers different programs, our facilitator training, other ways to volunteer, and tour our facility. You will have the chance to ask questions, to help you determine how you would like to volunteer at the Center.
