Brooke's Place 8 Program

BP-8 is an 8-week, peer-based grief support group provided at community partners’ sites, i.e, community centers, churches, schools, etc. This program has allowed Brooke’s Place to expand capacity in serving grieving children and teens. It has also increased our efforts to reach underserved populations, especially those impacted by homicide.

Volunteer facilitators are needed for these short-term programs that usually take place late afternoon or early evening. Facilitators must be trained in the traditional Brooke’s Place facilitator training and require background checks. To learn more, fill out the volunteer application!

"Doing grief work as a family allowed us to more easily share our feelings about our individual grief experiences.  During the sessions at Agape, my children would share feelings that they had not expressed to me before and it was instructive to hear what they had to say to the group about their grief. …One of the highlights of the sessions was when we were allowed to paint the horses and, in doing so, together honor my husband's memory. 

The Agape sessions came at a particularly opportune time for my son as he had really been struggling with his grief.  He misses his dad terribly and had shut down at times because it was too painful for him to think of his dad.  Connecting with and caring for the horses helped him open up."
