Peer Group Support

Adult family members can participate in specific peer support or drop-in groups. On-going grief support groups are also offered for children ages 5 to 11, middle schoolers, and teens. These bi-monthly meetings include concurrent facilitated support groups for the accompanying parents or caregivers and allow an opportunity to discuss and share experiences with grief. Parents or caregivers of younger children (1 – 4) are also welcome to participate. Learn More

1:1 Peer Support

In addition to participating in specific or drop-in groups, parents or family caregivers can receive individual support from a trained volunteer peer counselor. Learn More

Grief Therapy

Some individuals have circumstances that complicate their grief work. These individuals may benefit from therapy rather than or in addition to Kara's peer services. If necessary, the therapy services can also accommodate couples and families together. Learn More

Kara - support for families
Kara has become an internal part of me. The caring, honesty, respect, and hope that I experienced in my support group is forever part of my being. Thank you Kara for giving me the deepest, truest meaning of community!
