Roberta’s House: Helping Kids Make Sense of Grief

Jul 24, 2017

Teens who have lost someone they love may feel angry or overwhelmed, struggle to ask for help and withdraw from their friends. The nonprofit Roberta’s House aims to let young people know they are not alone in grief, and help them develop tools to work through their grief and rebuild their lives. We speak to Dorenzer Thomas, coordinator of youth and school-based services at Roberta’s House, volunteer Mary Dorsey, and three young people who tell us what they’ve gained from activities at Roberta’s House.

Check out children's programs here. The teen program mentioned is called Changing the Game. Call 410-235-6633 for more information.
