The Kids Who Kare program is an age-appropriate support group that allows children to move past the isolation felt after a loss by connecting with other kids who are experiencing similar struggles. The groups help children process their losses and the accompanying emotions. Our trained staff and volunteers support the children as they use art, activity, and story telling to work through the emotions evoked by their loss. Past projects have included activities focused on how to understand feelings of anger, sadness, and worry and sharing favorite memories of loved ones.
The Children’s program covers kids ranging from 5-12, for ages 13 and above please see the Teen program.
Sessions are held the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at the Christi Center (View Map). The parents/guardians meet at the same time in a separate room.
The Christi Center also began offering the Kids Who Kare program in Williamson County in November 2013 , thanks to a generous grant from New York Life Foundation. The groups are held the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month at the Community Resource Center in Georgetown for parents and children ages 5-12. The CRC is located at 805 West University Avenue.

In addition we have quarterly outings for the children and their families and an all day retreat at Charlie’s Place on Lake Buchanan in the summer. Our quarterly outings have included visiting a miniature horse farm, creating and then flying kites, and going to Amy’s Ice Cream!
