Grief, in the wake of the death of a family member can be a difficult time of change and uncertainty for children, teens and their families. It is often isolating. Grief needs time, space, support and connections to others so that children and families can begin rebuilding their lives. Based in Oakville, the Lighthouse provides a place where children, teens, and their parents and guardians who have experienced a life changing death loss can come together to be part of a community. Through participation in facilitated peer groups, they find understanding, stability and support.
