Snowline helps children and teens

Local children and teens suffer countless losses each year. Ranging from the sudden death of a parent, a grandparent’s battle with cancer, even the tragic loss of a dear friend, kids often find themselves feeling isolated in their grief.

Not wanting to burden others who are also mourning, not wanting to be different, they often hide their feelings and thoughts.

Snowline created a program to help these children work through their grief: Healing All Together — Snowline Hospice’s Place for Grieving Children, Teens and Their Families.

Healing All Together began as a pilot program in January 2009 as a place where boys and girls (and their families) could work through their feelings after the death of a loved one.

Youth ages 5 to 18 have found a place of healing. A place where they — alongside peers who have suffered a similar loss — can convey through art, motion, music or play what words alone cannot express.

Thanks to the generous donations of community members, Healing All Together (HAT) continues to be offered on a regular basis.

Snowline Hospice is looking for adult volunteer facilitators for the peer support groups that meet every other Thursday evening during the next school year (17 sessions).

The volunteers help create a safe and accepting environment where children, teens and adults are free to work through their grieving process in their own unique way.

Interested individuals are invited to attend an informational night on Thursday, May 15 from 5:30-6:30. The meeting is at the Snowline Hospice Clinical Services Building, 6520 Pleasant Valley Road in Diamond Springs.

The 20 hours of evening training will run from June 3 through June 26 on Mondays and Thursdays.

Attending the information night is not mandatory to receiving the training.

Be a friend. If you know of a young person who might benefit from this unique program, talk to his or her parent about Healing All Together. Healing All Together is a service of Snowline Hospice and is free of charge.

For more information contact Barbara Smiley, manager of clinical volunteer services, or Sue Watson, bereavement coordinator, at 530-621-7820.
