WHERE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES ARE EMPOWERED TO MEANINGFULLY
ENGAGE WITH THEIR GRIEF
The Kentucky Center for Grieving Children and Families supports children, youth, and families as they grieve and grow.
Kentucky’s children need dramatically increased availability and access to child and family-specific grief support services. The numbers are telling:
1 in 10 Kentucky children experience the death of a parent, caregiver, or sibling by age 18 (national average is 1 in 14)
Kentucky ranks #5 in the nation for childhood bereavement rates
Nationally, Covid-19 will increase youth bereavement between 17-30%, with children of color being disproportionately impacted
