Beloit Regional Hospice provides grief support for stateline youth

Beloit Regional Hospice’s “Kids, Teens ’n Grief Program” allows children and teens to share with others their own age in discussing the many thoughts and feelings that surround the death of someone close to them. Parents meet at the same time to learn more about the grieving process in children and ways to be supportive of their child.

The next seven-week group will begin Jan. 29 and runs from 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. This is open to the community. This service is provided without cost to participants. To register for the group, more information, or to schedule a speaker on this topic please call the grief support staff at (608)363-7421 or toll free at (877) 363-7421.
