Have you heard about STARS? STARS: Grief Support For Kids provides children in our community with grief support services, educational resources, fun and hope. No doubt, many of your employees and their families have encountered grief following the loss of a family member, friend or co-worker. When children have lost a loved one, it can be a devastating and confusing time. Suffering from grief is painful to deal with whether you are a child, adolescent or an adult. Facilitated by St. Elizabeth Healthcare Hospice, STARS helps to make the grief process a bit easier for children and their caregivers. Throughout the past 16 years, STARS has helped thousands of children learn to deal with their grief and sadness.
STARS and other bereavement services are provided free-of-charge to patients, family members and the community regardless of their affiliation with St. Elizabeth Hospice. Therefore, fundraising events are the primary source of funding which enables us to continue to provide this wide-variety of services. STARS operates with donations from corporations, schools, organizations, churches, teams and individuals. We couldn’t make this happen without your support.
