It takes a lot of hearts to support families who are coping with baby loss. Whether you have experienced a loss and want to share your strength or are an ally who wants to help others move from hurt to healing, we invite you to be part of the care in the Griffin Cares Foundation.
The work of the Griffin Cares Foundation is made possible thanks to the energy, effort, and expertise of our caring volunteers. If you would like to join our volunteer team, we would love to learn more about you and your areas of interest.
Peer mentors are trained volunteers who are matched with newly bereaved peers to help them cope with the early days of grief. Talking one-on-one with a peer mentor who has “been there” can help someone new to loss feel less alone. It can also provide a glimmer of hope.
The Griffin Cares Peer Mentorship program includes training and ongoing support for mentor participants. Applicants must be at least one year post loss and feel ready to discuss topics including baby loss and grief to support a peer.
Peer support is all about families helping other families get through tough times. If there was something you did that helped you cope, we invite you to share it with others in the baby loss community.
Is there a book you read that helped you clarify your feelings? A social account that makes you feel less alone? A meaningful ritual that gives you a sense of peace? Sharing your suggestions can make the path a little easier for someone else.
