Partnering with the Community
At Judi’s House, we recognize that many children and families do not have access to grief support services. In an effort to reach grieving children across the Metro Denver area, Judi’s House has established partnerships with local schools and organizations to offer grief care services at the community level. These partnerships also help raise awareness about the needs of grieving children, as well as educate the public about the resources that are available to them.
What can Judi’s House provide my School or Community Based Site?
