Children's Bereavement Program
A Death of a Loved One
Imagine what it must be like for a child who suffers the death of a parent, sibling, or someone special in their life. Who can they turn to for support? Their friends shy away because they don’t know what to say or do. It’s hard to talk to other family members because they are already grieving. How do they cope with the death of a loved one? In Skagit, Island, and North Snohomish Counties they can come to The Landing, a safe and loving place where kids can share with others.
Helping Children Grieve
The Landing provides support so children and teens ages 3-18 can share their experiences as they move through the healing process. Supportive services are also extended to families, caregivers and the community.
What We Offer:
• Ongoing support groups for children and their families whether the death occurred through illness, accident, suicide or murder. Our volunteers work closely with the children, teens, and parents to create a supportive environment where sharing feelings and concerns helps to facilitate the healing process.
• Anticipatory grief support services are available for children, teens and families experiencing the impact of a life challenging illness of a family member or significant person in their life.
Free, Impartial, Confidential
• Accessible – on the campus of United General Hospital in Sedro-Woolley
The Landing could not operate without our dedicated group of volunteers. We are completely reliant on contributions from individuals, businesses, clubs, organization, and foundation. Families contribute as they are able.
