Bereavement sErvices for children
Right now we are offering local peer support services to benefit families by way of community activities and recreation. Once per month, we will organize a day of activities for the age-appropriate cohorts. The goal of this portion of our program is to encourage proper coping mechanisms and life skills, while maintaining peer support. Secondly, we are in the process of launching a brand new bereavement mentorship pilot program! The mentorship program will be provided virtually with HIPAA-compliant technology so that our families can have remote access from any part of Southern California. Coming soon in Summer of 2019.
Bereavement services for caregivers
For parents and caregivers, The Jeremi Kehnt Foundation will provide tools to help you cope with your own experiences with grief. We understand that it is hard to be a parent or caregiver coping with the loss of a loved one, in addition to caring for children who are also grieving with you. Our goal is to provide up-to-date resources will be available so that parents and caregivers are able to balance this new life that surrounds loss. Current research on grieving shall be updated frequently in order to provide additional coping mechanisms and tools for parents, caregivers, and children. Similar to our virtual mentorship program for our bereaved children, there will be a chance for caregivers to take advantage of their own connections. We will have mentors who have lived the path of grief and can offer understanding and support.
