Program AKA (also known as): Circle of Care

Program Description: Circle of Care - East Bay Agency for Children assists children and families who are coping with grief after the death of a loved one. We also offer a 10 week workshop called Resilient Parenting for Bereaved Families (Spring 2021) which provides practical tools & skills for parents to meet the needs of their grieving children while grieving themselves. We are one of the very few programs in the county devoted exclusively to the needs of children and families who are experiencing death of a loved one. Fees are set on a moderate sliding scale, and no one is turned away for inability to pay. Families referred to Circle of Care should call directly (510) 531-7551 x3195. We will conduct a short telephone intake when they call and connect them with appropriate services and or referrals. Hablamos Espanol
