Hospice of Northwest Ohio Receives $25,000 GrantPublished: Monday, December 21, 2009 7:00 am
In an effort to support grieving children in our community, Hospice of Northwest Ohio will be offering "Bobby's Books - Make a Difference in the World" to area schools. The effort aims to enhance coping abilities for losses big and small.
Grant money from the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic presented by Kroger will jump start the program locally in 2010. This proven program will educate counselors and teachers about children's grief and provide them with the tools to begin those necessary conversations with children - all in an effort to help the children develop life-long coping skills.
