VIRTUAL Family Nights

Grief Support for the Whole Family

Due to COVID-19 requirements for physical distancing,
our Family Nights program is being converted to an online format. 

During this time of physical distancing, family grief support is more important than ever. Our virtual Family Nights, offered free of charge, bring grieving families together online ahead of holidays and other special days to promote sharing and communication.
 

CaringMatters’Family Nights workshops help families learn coping tools, plan for handling celebrations, and mark the absence of their loved one(s). Art activities, facilitated by trained volunteers, encourage parents and children to create something together as a way to continue conversations about their loved ones and to help keep their memories alive.

Please contact 
Penny Gladhill at pennyg@caringmatters.org or 301-990-0852

to learn more or to register.

For the virtual Family Nights, families will need a space where they can do an art project together, as a well as a device, preferably a tablet or computer, to access Zoom. CaringMatters will deliver all necessary art project materials a few days prior to the online workshop.

 

Each workshop is designed to be independent of the others, so that families can come to one or more as they choose. Appropriate for families with children ages 5-18. Registration is required.
