Partnering with the Community

We know that for many families, getting to Judi’s House can be difficult. In an effort to support these grieving children, Judi’s House has developed partnerships with school districts, local schools, and organizations. Through these partnerships, Judi’s House Community-Based Care Team can offer grief care services for middle schoolers, caregiver workshops, and staff trainings at community-based organizations and schools.


COMMUNITY-BASED SERVICES

Free Workshops for Adults:

Judi’s House will offer three workshops for any parents, caregivers, and adults in the community who want to learn more about grieving children. Details for our 2019-2020 school year workshops coming soon.

School and Community-Based Grief Support Partnerships:

(Services only available to middle schoolers)

Assessment — Judi’s House counselors meet one on one with each potential group member at their school or organization.

Group Counseling — Pathfinders curriculum is used to facilitate the 10-session, peer-based grief groups. These groups focus on normalizing grief responses, coping skills, providing adult and peer support, and creating a safe space to process and share grief.

 

Community Organization Consultation:

Schools and organizations may reach out to Judi’s House at any time with grief related questions or concerns. These consultations are available to increase support for grieving children to build an understanding of the impact of grief. For consultations email schoolgroups@judishouse.org.

Personnel and Staff Trainings:

Judi’s House can provide grief-specific trainings to school staff and personnel to support the development of a grief- and trauma-aware community. This service is available to all school levels.
