School-Based Peer Support Groups

Recognizing that there are many families who cannot access our on-site services due to a variety of barriers such as distance, socioeconomic stressors or caregivers’ ability to participate, Peter’s Place brings support to children in their own schools.

Our in-school peer support program is an 8-week program that we bring to schools and facilitate in conjunction with counseling/social work staff and/or interns. The hands-on program features a variety of creative projects, games and discussions designed to support grieving children. By bringing students together who have had similar losses, we are empowering them with tools to support themselves and each other.
