Peer support groups are open-ended and there is no cost for participation. Participants may join groups at any time during the year after attending an Orientation. Because grief is unique to each individual, children and their families decide their length of participation at the CBC.
Orientations are held monthly for families considering participation, and for other interested persons looking to learn about the Center. To register for an Orientation, call 305-668-4902. For Group schedules visit the Lift From Loss site.
Young Adult Groups*
The Young Adult Peer Support Group, called Lift From Loss (for ages 18-32), who have lost a significant person in their life. The group meets Tuesday Evenings on the University of Miami Campus at St. Bede Episcopal Chapel.
The CBC also offers support groups for adults who play a significant role in a child's life and adults with personal loss. The CBC offers:
Parent/Caregiver support groups (grieving the loss of a child, spouse, friend or relative) in English and Spanish (CBC en espanol). See the Family Groups page for site information.
Adult support groups (CBC supported or community based referral) for adults with no participating children.
* Ransom Everglades, Miami Country Day School, Belen Jesuit Preparatory School, NOVA Southeastern University, Franklin Academy Charter School, Heron Heights Elementary, St. Bede Episcopal Chapel, Temple Beth Sholom, and Temple Judea generously donate rooms for our groups.
CBC Hurricane/Tropical Storm Policy Reminder: During Hurricane season or major weather events, CBC Groups follow the public schools' hurricane policy. If public schools are closed and/or your group location is closed, the CBC is also closed.
In the event of a local tropical system this season, we hope everybody fares well and remains safe.
