Off-Site Professional Trainings or Presentations

Grief presents itself differently among schools, agencies, faith-based or community organizations, and businesses. Upon request, we will work with your organization to develop a presentation to fit your needs. If your organization is seeking more intimate guidance and support for a specific time-sensitive grief-related matter, please contact our Education and Community Outreach Director, Ashley Herr at 610-222-4110 ext 123 or by email at

Grief Resources for Schools

We invite the opportunity to support your efforts in providing students, their families, and your staff with resources you may need while developing plans for the Fall during this pandemic. So much is being asked of you as educators. By partnering with our Center to provide some of these services suggested for those grieving, you will help reduce anxiety, relieve stress, and most importantly, benefit the educational, emotional, psychological and physical well-being of your entire school community. See our flyer for more information:



While our services are being offered both in-person and through telehealth currently, our service area for counseling and peer support groups primarily includes community residents of Southeastern PA (the Greater Philadelphia area).  Our education and awareness efforts reach well beyond these direct service limits, but we do prioritize our staff commitments based on capacity and need.  If you are out of our area but would like support finding resources in your state/region, we can assist you in finding contacts through our national networks of grief service providers.

Guiding Principal

  • Availability of quality, supportive resources provides hope and potential for all to heal through meaningful growth
    • Increasing resilience in individuals, families, and organizations impacted by grief has a systemic impact on a community’s ability to withstand a crisis.
    • Bridging support for people of all ages, beliefs, and diverse experiences brings a stronger sense of unity and purpose in life to us all.
