A Friends of Aine Overview
Our peer-to-peer support groups operate for eight-week sessions from 6:00 pm to
7:30 pm in safe, comfortable, age-specific group rooms. We offer Fall, Winter, and
Spring sessions with the choice of Tuesday or Thursday evenings.
Friends of Aine programs are as unique as the individuals we serve, and our
customizable approach offers grief-based activities to invite conversation. Our trained
volunteer facilitators foster a secure environment allowing children and teens the
ability to discuss and work through grief emotions attributed to their losses.
Our FoA curriculum promotes essential life skills to encourage the development of
coping strategies to effectively process grief. To further support families with
bereavement services to manage the trauma and suffering triggered by the loss of
a loved one, we offer adult groups simultaneously to assist caretakers in supporting
grieving children and teens.
