Mission: Brooke's Place is a nonprofit
organization providing support and services to grieving children
and families in the belief that hope for tomorrow begins today.
Volunteer Opportunities: Facilitators provide a safe and supportive
environment for children, ages 3-20+ years old, and adults to
grieve the way they need to grieve. Listen to and validate the
feelings, thoughts, and words that are shared during the support
groups and letting the participants lead you through their grief
journey. NO COUNSELING background is required, just a love for
Being a Buddy often includes more behind-the-scenes effort and
less direct contact with families. Buddies help set the atmosphere
for our program by providing assistance to participants throughout
the evening. Duties include preparing rooms for evening activities,
greeting families as they arrive, set up/clean up for dinner,
serving pizza & drinks, setting up the lending-library,
assisting facilitators with obtaining supplies, and helping with
clean-up after program night activities. Buddies volunteer twice a
month on Wednesday or Thursday evenings from 5:00 to 8:30.
