About the Charity
Nearly 7% of children experience the death of a loved one – and loss at a young age can present lifelong challenges. Sadly, children are often “hidden mourners” and the impact of this is hard to overestimate. Through its Children's Bereavement program, CaringMatters helps children express their feelings and acquire vitally important coping strategies. Specially trained volunteers guide the Good Grief Club, a bereavement group for children at county public schools; Camp Erin, an annual weekend camp, hosts children ages 8 to 17, supporting them through grief work intertwined with camp activities. Adults dealing with loss or life-threatening illness get help from Volunteer Helping Hands: companionship, respite for caregivers, and help with errands and household tasks. Adult Bereavement Groups (including one specifically for people who lost loved ones to COVID-19) enable people experiencing loss to share their stories, learn from one another, and … heal.
