Soul Survivors is a bereavement support group for up to 40 youth and their caregivers, guardians or parents. The program provides a caring, safe environment where participants are free to explore their feelings and concerns. Participants will learn that grief is not a process of forgetting, but remembering with less pain. Soul Survivors provides an opportunity for participants to meet others their age who know what it’s like to have experienced a death of someone they love. Participants will: • Share memories, explore feelings and remember loved ones through creative activities • Focus on the needs of mourning, with activities such as coloring books for younger participants and private journals for older youths • Share a light meal with other participating families Soul Survivors is a free service of Carilion Clinic Hospice. Priority is given to first-time participants. Space is limited! Register or refer a child in need by calling 540-563-5316, ext. 3014.
