Dealing with grief is challenging, especially for children and teens. Drew’s Hope is a free grief and loss support program offered each fall and spring for children, teens and their families who are grieving the death of a loved one (family member or friend). The seven session program is facilitated by counseling students and professors from Shippensburg University and is held on the campus of Shippensburg University and Greencastle Antrim Middle School (GA program is only held when enough families are registered for this location). Each session includes a complimentary dinner, followed by separate support sessions for children, teens and adults. Contact Marcie Taylor, Drew’s Hope Family Services Coordinator by phone at (717)532-8922 or by e-mail at drewmichaeltaylor@pa.net.
