The Kentucky Center for Grieving Children and Families
The Kentucky Center for Grieving Children and Families, Inc. just launched in the fall of 2021 and provides
its community grief services free of charge. Through donations and community support they provide activities
and programs that support Kentucky families as they grieve and heal. KCGCF offers student grief support groups and family/caregiver education and support for youth and families in the following schools in Fayette County, Kentucky. If you are interested in having your child join a grief support group, please contact the school’s
Family Resource and Youth Services Center or email email@example.com.
The KCGCF also works with grieving families to provide community referrals for additional services and
supports, including individual therapy and therapeutic recreation opportunities. The KCGCF offers expert
training in youth bereavement (its hallmarks, trauma-informed strategies for supporting grieving children,
how to support grieving families and encourage resilient parenting). Presentations and training can be
arranged for schools, churches, social service agencies, workplaces, and community groups. In 2022, they
hope to launch free, community-based grief support groups for children and youth ages 4-18, organized by children’s ages. Talk time will be combined with play and other types of creative healing experiences (such
as art, writing, or music). Concurrent parent and caregiver groups will help caregivers understand youth bereavement and offer parenting techniques to strengthen the family as they heal and move forward.
