Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists?

Each person will grieve at some point in their life. We believe you are never too young to benefit from the compassionate, healing support of community. We also believe the earlier in life you can learn the importance of the steps of grief the more equipped you will be to experience a healthy grief journey when someone you love is gone from your life.

We offer support groups throughout the community and Greater Cincinnati area. In addition, we go into over 35 school and provide monthly grief groups. Our groups are for elementary, junior high and high school students. When needed, we provide emergency assistance to schools when there has been a sudden death of a student or teacher, and continue to provide support as long as required for each person to heal.

Does your organization have volunteer opportunities available for students? *

Yes, Grades 6 – 12

List possible volunteer opportunities -or- a link to where they can be found on the web.

We provide Pathway to Healing events 3-4 times/year. Volunteers are always needed for these family and teen events. Recent events have included a Memorial Balloon release and Bonfire at Niederman Farm and Memorial Butterfly Release at Chesterwood Village.

We also have evenings and weekend "volunteer assembly" gatherings that you can join us with a friend and help put together packages for local schools and emergency needs that arise throughout the year. These are fun and an easy way to also earn service hours.

More information on the volunteer opportunities is available on our Sign-Up Genius (link below). Please note some events are adult only events.
