Death Café — a facilitated conversation — will meet from 5:30-7 p.m. April 19 facilitated by Jane Johnson. At a Death Café, people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. The objective is “to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their lives.” This is a group directed discussion rather than a grief support or counseling session. Death Cafés are always offered in a safe, accessible, respectful and confidential space, with no intention of leading people to any conclusion, or course of action.
Family Support Group facilitated by Community Children’s Council will be held from 5:30—7 p.m. on April 19 During this monthly group, parents and caregivers of especially challenging children support each other by sharing their successes and challenges. Facilitators provide information on community, state and national resources and guidance on how best to navigate the systems of care for better outcomes for their child and family.
