Summary

We hear everyday from families who say they "don’t know where we would be without The Dougy Center.” The uniqueness of the peer support model works for them because they are with others who understand

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Our families have been through one of the worst experiences in life: the death of a parent, sibling, or close friend. The project will serve 16 participants and family members for one year. The need is the direct result of the fire. We had to provide suitable alternative space for our program, so that peer support groups could continue without interruption. Expenses not covered by insurance include leasing the space and additional staff costs for two years while the burned building is replaced.

How will this project solve this problem?

We firmly believe that children, even those as young as 3 – 5 years, have the innate ability to cope with their grief in their own time and in their own way, if given the appropriate tools and a nurturing, non-judgmental environment in which to share

Potential Long Term Impact

Unsupported grieving can lead to poverty, depression, substance abuse, suicidal behavior, anti-social behaviors, physical complications, and/or criminal behavior. The Dougy Center’s goal is to avert these risk factors.
