The Lighthouse for Grieving Children

The Lighthouse for Grieving Children provides peer support for grieving children, youth, and their families in Halton, Peel and beyond. We offer open-ended, on-going grief support groups to help children and their families re-adjust after the death of a parent or sibling. We provide a forum for friendship and self-help with others who have experienced a similar loss and develop coping skills after a life-altering death. The experience of a “life-altering death” changes the entire family and will affect a child’s life from then onwards. Our families find and create a community of understanding, stability, and support. A death in the family can also cause a significant strain on a family’s finances, so all our groups are free of charge.
