Soaring Doves Family Bereavement Tool Kit

What is it?

This resource is a "toolkit" which is a box full of multiple resources, comfort items, workbooks, and materials that have been designed to match a student's developmental level. Toolkits are available for the following age groups: Pre-K/Kindergarten, Elementary School, Middle School, and High School aged students. Each toolkit provides educational and helpful materials to help a student and family navigate grief and loss.

This initiative is funded by a grant awarded from the Maryland Community Health Resources Commission (CHRC). These toolkits are offered at NO COST to student and families. Any student who has experienced the loss of a loved one is welcome to receive this toolkit. 

Hospice of Washington County offers child, teen, and adult support groups and individual services. Contact Stephanie Nalley or Jennifer Morningstar to learn more about our Soaring Doves Family Bereavement Program.
