We know that for many families, getting to Judi’s House can be difficult. To support these grieving children, Judi’s House has developed partnerships with local school districts and community organizations.

Judi’s House offers community-based programs for youth and adult in partnership with local school districts and community organizations. Through these partnerships, the Judi’s House Community-Based Care Team offers grief care programming and workshops to youth, staff, and caregivers in Metro Denver and beyond, free of charge.

Middle School In-Person Grief Support Groups

Judi’s House Pathfinders curriculum is used to facilitate 10-session peer-based grief groups for middle school aged youth. These groups focus on normalizing grief responses, developing coping skills, connecting with adult and peer support, and creating a safe space to process and share grief.

Prior to starting group, Judi’s House counselors meet one-on-one with each potential group member at their school or organization to assess how grief is uniquely impacting them.

Grief Education Workshops (Grades 1-12)

To support communities in starting a dialogue about loss, Judi’s House created universal grief workshops for youth in grades 1-12. These workshops are developmentally tailored both in terms of content and time and can be offered in-person (within a 20-mile radius of Judi’s House) or virtually.

A knowledgeable Judi’s House grief expert will join classrooms and youth groups to provide grief awareness through an engaging and interactive experience.
