Teachers, counselors, social workers, healthcare professionals, and others who work with young people are invited to a training session to become a Griefbuster. Griefbusters:

  • Provide one-on-one support for children, ages 4-18, who are experiencing the approaching death of a loved one or grieving someone who has already died
  • Help during and/or after school following a school-wide crisis involving a death
  • Griefbusters was started more than 20 years ago by Community Hospital’s Hospice of the Central Coast.

Once trained, Griefbusters volunteers are asked to provide 2-4 instances of support each year for Community Hospital's Griefbusters program.
