Good Grief Trains First Facilitator Class and Begins Supporting Grieving Children
This Martin Luther King Day and National Day of Service, fourteen exceptional men and women graduated from Good Grief's 36-hour facilitator training. The 15th training class and FIRST in Princeton, included bereaved mothers, a professor, counselors, educators, advocates, among others and a Good Grief mom. Sandy Bruno came to Good Grief almost four years ago when her husband died unexpectedly, leaving Sandy, two daughters, and his dad. “I’m ready to give back to a community that changed my family’s life with support and love,” said Bruno.
Good Grief’s Associate Executive Director said “Good Grief is able to reach hundreds of additional children because of these courageous individuals who are making a one year commitment to grieving children. Their compassion, empathy, and willingness to witness profound pain and joy are what make this possible. Lives will be changed forever, not only because of death but also because of each of these wonderful people.”
Good Grief volunteer facilitators help run the organization’s free groups for children, teens, and families after the death of a parent or sibling.
Good Grief programs are located in Morristown and Princeton, New Jersey. Families travel from more than 125 towns to receive support in this caring community. In November 2012, Good Grief opened its first satellite in Princeton, offering free support to children throughout Central New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania.
