We are all going through something, whether it's an addiction, a loss, or just anxiety about daily life.

Yesterday, a tragedy occurred in Clinton that is affecting us all. Three young members of our community were taken from us far too soon.

Whether it is an accident, an act of violence, or an illness, we all know someone who was taken too soon from this world.

It is times like these where we cannot shut ourselves away no matter how much we want to. It's times like these we need to reach out to others, be surrounded by those who love us, and come together for our friends and neighbors struggling through a tragedy we could not begin to understand.

For those of us struggling through the tragedies of life, there are places that help.

The Center for Grieving Children

At CGC, we want to give our community the opportunity to explore and study the process of grief using outside resources and tools. We use our Resource page to provide relevant books, links, activities, and more that we feel are helpful in learning about and processing grief.
