Judi’s House is also committed to raising awareness and educating professionals, and the community at large, about the needs of grieving children and families. We regularly conduct trainings and educational workshops at schools, universities, agencies and conferences. Last year, we provided training and education to over 2,400 individuals—both locally and around the country. These training opportunities serve to strengthen the workforce that will encounter grieving children and families in the community, ensuring they are grief- and trauma-informed in their care.
