Healing Hearts, Session 3


Healing Hearts is a grief program for 1st-6th grade children who have had a loved one die. The program is designed to help children begin to recognize and understand the many feelings associated with the death of someone loved. It gives children a chance to interact with others who have experienced the death of a loved one. Through play, stories, games, songs, talking about feelings, art and conversations with a bunny puppet named Hamilton, they find a comfortable place to express their thoughts and feelings.

This program is free of charge and open to any child in the community. Pre-registration is required. To register for this program visit
