Support Groups for Children and Teens
Stepping Stones is a support program specifically designed to help children, teens, and families cope with the terminal illness or death of a loved one. Our support groups provide an environment of grief support and education that allows the child to direct his or her own healing with the support and guidance of bereavement specialists and trained volunteers. Specialists are also available to work with parents to help them as they support their children through the grief process.
We offer year-round support groups and individual support, and also offer support services to students and schools. Yolo Hospice is a proud member of the National Alliance for Grieving Children.
During COVID-19, we’ve moved our Stepping Stones support to a virtual platform.
New virtual, 8-week format for ages 4 – 17
Pre-registration and orientation are required. Please call us at (530) 758-5566 to join.
Bereavement Support is available for the parents and guardians of our Stepping Stones children. This includes the Parents/Guardians Support Group concurrent with the children’s groups and/or individual counseling at other times as well as open invitation to join our regular Thursday day or evening Adult Drop-In Bereavement Support groups.
