Who’s Taking Care in Community this week:
Social distancing helps save lives and flatten the curve, but it also creates a feeling of isolation. And when a child loses a loved one, it becomes very difficult for them to process their grief in a healthy way. Brooke’s Place has been providing support and resources to children, teens, young adults, and their families to thrive in the midst of grief for many years, and they’re not stopping now.
Through COVID-19, Brooke’s Place has kept the safety, health, and well-being of their community as their highest priority. The nonprofit now offers virtual support groups and teletherapy to its client community.
Thank you for taking care in your community, Brooke’s Place!
