Our youth services are designed to support grieving youth (13-24 years) and increase the resilience for all they may face. We firmly believe each individual’s response to death is unique, which is why our Youth Services cater to a broad range of grief support that are not only culturally sensitive, but structured for dealing with a wide range of emotions by means of a more holistic approach.
Healing Hearts Teen Grief Group
For teens, ages 13-18, who have experienced the death of someone in their lives.
Our 10-week groups consist of: developing skills to cope with grief in safe and healthy ways; expressive arts and the healing process; sharing and hearing others grief stories in a supportive and safe environment; reflecting on the journey of grief and the work of mourning; engaging in mindfulness strategies.
Wellness Warrior Cafe
Trained hospice volunteers meet with clients ages 18-24 to support them by means of being alongside their grief process.
Equine Facilitated Healing for Grieving Youth
The Healing Power of Horses (ages 13-18)

Activities include: healing circles, on-site counselling, horse yoga, mindfulness activities, grief and loss related affirmation scavenger hunt, grooming and liberty work, painting on horses, and more!
