Expanding youth services
We recognize the growing need to support youth in talking about grief. Emotional reactions to traumatic loss such as suicide are intense and often overwhelming. Knowing it’s okay to say “I’m not OK” can open the door to begin healing. We recognize that youth who attend our programs will benefit from a continuum of care model, that integrates caregivers, and provides ongoing opportunities to check-in throughout the year.
Did You Know?
For over twenty years, Caring Hearts has been offering a bi-annual Caring Hearts camp that helps children ages 6-16 develop healthy coping strategies, promoting strong mental health and wellness.
The Caring Hearts Camp allows youth to grieve, heal and grow in a safe and nurturing environment. For many campers, they often worry about what others will think about them and are not always willing to talk and share their story or bring their grief to the forefront. Caring Hearts Camp provides educational and therapeutic activities combined with fun camp experiences and allows our campers to find healthy healing rituals and practices while also benefitting from being physically active.
This year, we are offering a series of day camps:
September 26 or 27 2020: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Caring Hearts Dallas Valley Day Camp for youth ages 8 - 16 Space is limited to 12.Download the application for the September 26 or 27 full day camp
