Thank you to January 2016 newly trained class of volunteer facilitators! Imagine is so grateful for all of the time, effort and dedication of all of our volunteers who serve as companions to the over 200 participants in the program.
“Volunteer facilitators are the very foundation of our program. It is inspiring to watch these courageous men and women support grieving children and adults, through their ability to be present and listen. Each volunteer gives over 100 hours of their time each year,” said Mandi Zucker, MSW, Imagine Program Director.
Imagine offers free year-round grief support groups for children age 3-18 who have had a parent or sibling die, and for families coping with a family member with a terminal or chronic illness. Concurrent groups are available for parents and guardians, young adults 18-30 and adults 30 and up.
