We LOVE Young Professionals of Albuquerque! So thankful for the hard work this group put in at our new Home a couple weekends ago! We couldn't do this work without our incredible community of supporters! 💜

It's safe to say our Fresh Start Volunteering event over this past weekend was a success!

We had 16 amazing volunteers and put in a combined 25 volunteer hours 🙌

Here's what we did to help Children's Grief Center:
- Organized and cleaned out the storage room.
- Trimmed the hedges.
- Pulled weeds and cleared rock beds.
- Cleaned the back of the building and removed trash.

Family Grief Support - For Free.

Our mission is to provide a safe and supportive environment where children, teens, young adults (ages 5-25) and their caregivers can share experiences and feelings while grieving the death of a loved one. Because finances are often uncertain after a death, we provide our services at no cost. To start receiving support, just call us - (505) 323-0478, Mon-Fri 8:30-5.

Peer Support groups take place in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho – for children who live too far to attend groups, Camp Corazon emerged to offer critical grief support to rural communities throughout New Mexico that otherwise lack such support.

STOP BY FOR A TOUR! We’d love to share the amazing things happening here with you!

So cute! Thank you!
For anyone who has experience loss at an early age...
Tomorrow on KUNM, we'll remember those killed in Albuquerque recently, and talk through ways of coping with grief and trauma. If you've lost a loved one, what kinds of support have been most helpful? Do you have thoughts or advice for survivors going through this right now? We'd love to hear from you:
Posting a notice to bring attention to a book I wrote and illustrated. The book was written to help children cope with grief. Book Description Jacob’s Valentine is a beautiful uplifting story of how one little boy finds closure after the death of his mother. Death and grief are difficult for children to accept and understand. The story is written to help children at the time of the loss of a loved one. Designed to be read to a child by an adult, it will help start a conversation about their loss. The book will assist the child in finding a way to send a final message to the one they have lost. The book is available at http://www.amazon.com/dp/0997516208 Amazon Books is doing a Limited Time Promotional Sale for $10.80 and free shipping. Or contact me directly at [email protected]

I never knew you all existed. Wonderful!!!!!
We don't have to pretend we're fine when we're actually a mess and really struggling. It's okay when someone asks you how you are, to say "not well at all" or "I'm having a sh*tty day" or whatever. Some people won't be able to handle it and will feel very awkward with your honest answer, and some people will stop and notice and hold your hand even if it's just for a moment and acknowledge and honor what you're going through. Some of them may even check in later or come sit with you or ask if there's anything they can do to help. And there are all sorts of people in the middle of the two extremes. The point is no matter what a person's reaction is, it's okay (and important) to speak your truth and be honest about your pain, your grief and the fact that you might not really be fine.
What a wonderful idea! EVERYONE, no exceptions, needs a place to talk and not be afraid of being rejected. I love it! I'm sending you a ton of good thoughts!
