Henry Ford Hospice created the SandCastles Grief Support Program to provide grieving children and families the opportunity to come together for nurturing and strength as they learn to cope with the loss of a loved one.
SandCastles is free, open-ended program designed for children and teens, ages 3-18, to grieve their loss and to find within themselves their natural capacity to heal. Participation in group activities with peers supports the healing process by helping young people to accept grief as a normal response to loss.
Families interested in SandCastles support groups may call (313) 874-6881 to enroll or speak with a staff member. Pre-registration is required, and volunteer opportunities are also available.
