Adam's House 'Friends In Grief' Training



Located in Shelton, CT,  Adam's House offers FREE grief education and peer support in a safe, home-like setting. Our 'Helping Hearts Heal' program offers a healing place for families as they go through their 8-week grief journey. Here, children and their families will gather to draw support from their peers and gain new strategies for dealing with their loss. We support children struggling with any type loss- parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt/uncle or friend. All programs are offered at NO-COST to participating families. Ultimately, our goal is to empower our program participants to cope with their loss so they may live their lives to the fullest.  

Later this month, we are offering a 3-day, 12-hour extensive 'Friends in Grief' (FIG) 
training session which gives our volunteers the skills they need to become a facilitator and moderator of our 'Helping Hearts Heal' groups. During the 12-hours of training, FIG's will learn about the grieving process, how children deal with it, the trauma a death can cause if it was not dealt with properly, and how you can help children of all ages find a place of comfort in their time of loss. It is a wonderful and fulfilling program, and an inspiration to those lives you are lucky enough to touch!

Our next FIG Training dates are:

Thursday Jan 27th 5pm-8pm

    Friday,  Jan 28th 5pm- 8pm

Saturday Jan 29th 9am-3pm
