Roberta's House is a safe place where children, teens and adults discover that they are not alone in their grief. Children with their families share their feelings, memories and experiences in an atmosphere of acceptance with the love and support of trained volunteers.
The volunteers of Roberta’s house, along with a staff of professionals, assist children, teens and adults on how to experience and express their feelings safely and in a healthy manner. The Children work in small age appropriate groups utilizing creative activities to identify feelings and needs. The Adults share in groups and are given resources to support them in their journey. By working through the necessary grief task and understanding the essential needs of a child's grief, it allows families to support each other and communicate more effectively.
At Roberta's House, we believe every individual has the capability of healing and positive memories can become the motivation to live fully and purposefully. The children/families and adults can receive the support they need and look to the future with confidence and hopeful anticipation to develop quality relationships.
