Virtual Raise Your Glass 2021

During our live 2021 Raise Your Glass program, we featured two of our clients, Gilda and Michelle, whose families have participated in our Children's Bereavement Support programs, including Good Grief Clubs, Family Nights and our Parenting While Grieving Online Workshop. We are grateful that they shared their stories and proud to have them in our CaringMatters family. Their strength and grace inspires us to continue working diligently to reach families in our community in need of compassionate support. View their stories from the program below.
