WHAT WE DO

​SUNRISE CENTER:​​

SUNRISE CENTER

The Sunrise Center offers a place of hope and healing for children, teens and their families that are struggling with grief and loss due to the death of a loved one, being placed in foster care or having a parent/loved one diagnosed with a terminal illness. We provide peer support groups in a safe, supportive and understanding environment with the supplies they need to be able to communicate effectively. In doing so, children and adults will realize they are not alone and may begin to heal by expressing their emotions and feelings, together.

Grief Group

Foster Youth Support Group

Our Journey Group

Our Support Groups:

A support group for children and teens who are experiencing grief due to a death.

A concurrent adult support group is provided for the parents of grieving children

A support group for children and teens who are in the foster care system. A concurrent adult support group is provided to support the adults who are caring for foster children.

A support group for children and teens that have a parent or loved one diagnosed as terminal, but have not yet died. A concurrent adult support group is provided to support the adults who are caring for the grieving children as well as those that are dying

Our volunteers go through extensive training in grief support.  Our training manual has been developed and created after attending the Dougy Center Training Camp in Portland, Oregon, the organization which we are modeled after.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

AND ADVOCACY

The Foundation's director and volunteers are our best advocates by sharing valuable information regarding our programs with friends, colleagues, co workers and community leaders.

YOUTH-LED DISCUSSIONS  AND WORKSHOPS

Because the groups we facilitate are modeled as peer support groups, all of the discussions are led by our youth.
