Children’s grief support group starting soon

Chilliwack Hospice Society hosting after-school group for kids

Children experience grief in their own unique way, and the Chilliwack Hospice Society is there to help them.

They have an eight-week, after-school grief support group starting soon, designed for children aged four to 13. The group is best for children who have experienced the loss of a family member or friend through death, or those who currently have a friend or family member dying.

The group has a few spaces left, and begins Thursday, April 5 at the Chilliwack Hospice Society (7112 Vedder Road). The group meets every Thursday from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. until May 24.

To refer a child to this group, or to find out more call Ian Kunitski at 604-795-4660 ext. 106 or email
