WHO DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION SERVE?
The Dougy Center provides support in a safe place where children, teens, young adults, and their families grieving a death can share their experiences.
WHAT IS THEIR BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
Grieving children or teens may not feel comfortable openly talking about their pain for fear of being misunderstood or judged. Likewise, doctors, clergy, hospital staff, and school personnel often do not have the training to support children in their grief
HOW DO YOU HELP THEM?

The Dougy Center relies on the generosity of individuals, businesses and foundations. We receive no government funding and are supported entirely by private donations and professional training fees. We never charge families for our services.
