  • Become a Facilitator  Work with children, teens and adult support groups at Cason’s Place.  Facilitators guide structured age appropriate activities that address the needs of those that are grieving. You’ll work with the same group of children or teens twice a month. The overall goal of the facilitator training is to teach people how to help children, teens and adults to process their feelings of grief and to provide bereavement support. The training is open to all persons; no experience is necessary. Upon completion, people interested in volunteering will be interviewed and evaluated as to their readiness for facilitating. NEXT TRAINING OCT 21 and 22, 2017.
