Footprints Mission Statement
 
The Footprints Children’s Grief Ministry mission is to serve children dealing with grief in a Faith-based environment that is safe and accepting of all emotions and to help the child identify and begin to understand and deal with the emotions regarding the loss.
 
 
What is Footprints
 
Footprints Children's Grief Ministry is a free community-wide program serving children between the ages of 6 and 18 and their families who are experiencing grief and loss due to death or divorce.
 
We provide a safe caring environment in which children can learn to identify and cope with their emotions. Most importantly children can learn that "You are not alone."

Footprints Workshops
 
The Footprints schedule is one hour a day, once a week, for ten (10) weeks and scheduled on an as needed basis. All activities and sessions will be conducted in a group format led by three (3) trained, non-related adult volunteers with 8 to 10 children in each group. All staff volunteers/facilitators are trained in the overall process, in the specifics of the activities, and how to recognize and work with the grieving children.
 
We put children in peer support groups with other children their age who have gone through similar losses. The activities and games are designed to help children understand their emotions and began to deal with them. All activities and games are group-based emphasizing the theme of "You are not alone."
 
Getting the parents involved in the healing process is a huge key in the child’s success. While the children’s sessions are being conducted, a session for the parent or guardians with a facilitator trained to answer questions will also be provided on site.
