Herbie’s Friends

Herbie’s Friends

This free, five-week program allows family members who have experienced the loss of life of a grandparent, mother, father, child or other significant person to share their thoughts, feelings and stories.

Families with children ages 5-18 enjoy a provided meal together followed by group activities led by trained facilitators. Youth participants are welcomed into small groups by developmental age, while adults meet separately to learn about children’s grief and receive support. Registration is required. Spanish interpreters are available.

For more information, please contact Jill Thorson, Children’s Bereavement Services Coordinator (phone: 630.232.2233, extension 225; e-mail: jthorson@fvhh.net.) at Fox Valley Hands of Hope.
