Little Hands

This three-session grief program is for children ages 4 to 7 years old. During the program, children have the opportunity to interact with others their own age who have experienced the death of someone. Through play, stories, games, songs, talking about feelings, art and conversations with our bunny puppet, named “Hamilton,” children find a comfortable place to express their thoughts and feelings.

This program is offered at no cost to the families and open to any child in the community. Pre-registration is required to ensure we have enough supplies and staff for the children attending.

Upcoming program:

Fall 2024
