Me, Too is a program that supports children and families who have experienced the death of someone close to them. This program is offered at no charge to participants.
Families come together for one evening each week for eight weeks where children, teens, and adults gather in age specific groups. Groups are professionally facilitated and offered in the fall and winter each year. Sessions alternate between east and west side Portland locations. Families may register for groups any time after the death of a death of someone close to them.
Me, Too groups provide a safe, fun and supportive environment in which participants are able to express and explore their thoughts and feelings of grief and loss. Through shared experiences, family communication is enhanced and group members gain a sense of confidence in coping with their grief. There is no charge to attend Me, Too groups.
Clinicians are available to work with local schools to create individualized plans that respond to grief support needs in instances where a student, parent, teacher or other influential community leader has died. Me, Too staff can aid in developing onsite grief support groups at school, and provide educational opportunities for school staff. Support resources for the broader community are also available. Me, Too is a program of Legacy Hospice Services, the Oregon Hospice Association and Providence Hospice Programs.
