Hope for Grieving Families

Kidzcope provides grieving children and their families with community and peer support, ensuring no child ever has to grieve alone. Within our walls, families find comfort, healing and most importantly, hope.

How Kidzcope can help

At no cost to the family, children (ages 3-18) and their caregivers learn and grow while being surrounded by a supportive network of other individuals of like ages who are also facing the loss of a loved one. Through various forms of expressive arts and discussion-based activities led by trained volunteer facilitators, supported by a licensed grief counselor, children and families have the necessary support through the healing journey.

Our 9-week program provides services to families from all-over South-Central Kansas. Every child’s path to hope and healing is different – let Kidzcope guide the way. To learn more about the peer-bereavement counseling and how it could positively impact you or someone you know, contact:
