GRIEF SUPPORT GROUPS
Tomorrow's Rainbow provides free grief support groups to children ages 3 years old through high school and their families after the death of a significant person. Following orientation, services are ongoing on our miniature horse farm in Coconut Creek. Check out our Frequently Asked Questions.
Most bereaved children, teens, and adults do not need therapy after a death. Grief support groups allow participants to share in an emotionally safe, fun setting while removing social isolation. Services follow two best practice models - The Dougy Center Model of peer-facilitated grief support combined with therapeutic art/play, and the Eagala Model of Equine Assisted Learning. Check out our resources & tip sheets.
In Florida, 1 in 12 children will experience the death of a parent or sibling by the time they reach 18 years of age. Without support, these children are at great risk of negative physical and emotional behaviors. In addition, grieving children are being raised by grieving adults who also benefit from support. Participating in a group setting provides a special camaraderie by being with people who "get it." Tomorrow's Rainbow supports your entire family in their grief.
