Rainbows: Grief & Loss Kids Group
We hear you, you are not alone.
What does a Youth Program Worker do?
Heart on the Hill’s Family Support Worker’s are excited to offer “Rainbows; Grief & Loss” Group. This group will provide much needed support to children, and their parents in the Ladysmith community as they grieve and deal with changes in their family life.
Trained Family Support workers will facilitate small groups once a week, over the course of 12 weeks. Who will attend which group will be determined before the start date.
The week's topics should help kids and parents feel listened to and cared for as they explore feelings, develop coping skills, all while building relationships within their groups. The kids love the activities, journals, games, snacks, and the fact that their community cares!
“Grief and Loss” may include: divorce, separation from family members, death of a pet, death or loss of a family member…

It all began early in 1992 at a meeting of the Ladysmith Inter-Agency Liaison Committee, a group of representatives from the government-mandated agencies formed in the early 1970s to maximize cooperation among the agencies while minimizing the duplication of services.
In 1992, this group pooled some of their own money and decided to form a non-profit association to try to deal with these recurring situations. This became the foundation of the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association.
