Hospice of San Luis Obispo County will start offering a children’s grief support group at the organization’s San Luis Obispo location starting Oct. 2.
The volunteer hospice, which has served the area since 1977, will offer the support group on Fridays from Oct. 2 through Nov. 20 from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., according to a news release.
The support group can serve at most eight participants who are from 7 to 11 years old. It will offer a confidential, structured and warm environment for children to safely express their feelings and experiences with grief due to the death of a family member or friend.
Anyone with questions or who knows of a child who might benefit from the group can call Tony Huffaker at 544-2266. No new members will be taken after Oct. 2
The San Luis Obispo center is located at 1304 Pacific St.
All Hospice of SLO County services, including the children’s grief support group, are provided at no charge to the family or individual. For more information, visit www.hospiceslo.org.
