Grief Support



Caring for our community’s children is a key element of The Elizabeth Hospice’s mission.


Childhood grief is more prevalent than most people realize. One in five children will experience the death of someone significant in their life before they reach the age of 18. Without support, grieving children are at higher than normal risk for problems in school, substance abuse, depression and anxiety.


Our comprehensive Children’s Bereavement Program is the only one of its kind in San Diego County and Southwest Riverside County. Services are FREE of charge and open to everyone.

Enrollment is now open for our grief support groups for children ages 3 to 17. 

Until the health guidelines have been lifted, all sessions will be conducted virtually on Zoom.

Families with several children will need to submit a separate application for each child.
