Lois Harris, Program Director

Lois earned a Master’s Degree in Education from Arcadia University and completed her undergraduate work in Special Education at Bloomsburg University.   Since coming to the Center, she has attended professional trainings in bereavement, group facilitation and program management.  She has earned a certificate in Advanced Bereavement Facilitation through the American Academy of Bereavement and is Certified in Thanatology (Death, Dying and Bereavement) from the Association of Death Education and Counseling.

Since 1982, Lois has worked extensively with children from preschool to high school age in school, community and volunteer settings as teacher and in program development and management.  She most enjoys creating and implementing new programs to support children as they face specific challenges.

At the Center, Lois’ role as Program Director is to develop and coordinate all aspects of the support programs offered for grieving adults, children and families.  She facilitates children’s and adult support groups of Nello’s Corner, directs the children’s summer bereavement program, Camp Millie, and serves as the Center’s link to those adults seeking information regarding specialized support groups where she has also served as a group facilitator. She feels privileged to be able to share her love for learning and connection with those who find their way to the Center.
