What We Do
We offer groups for children and teens ages 3-18, who are grieving the death of a family member or friend. Parents and guardians also meet in their own support group.
We collaborate with schools – elementary, junior high and high schools – to provide on-site grief support for grieving students.
Our camp program includes an overnight summer camp for children ages 7-12 and a weekend retreat for teens ages 13-18.
Fernside staff consult with helping professionals, parents/guardians and other community members who have grief-related questions or concerns.
Fernside provides immediate and long-term support to schools and other organizations following a death.
Community Outreach & Education
We provide presentations on a variety of topics related to grief in addition to sharing information about our history and services.
Literature & Materials
