The Dougy Center provides support in a safe place where children, teens, young adults and their families who are grieving a death can share their experiences. We provide support and training locally, nationally and internationally to individuals and organizations seeking to assist children in grief. Our Pathways program provides support for families living with an advanced serious illness.
Bottom Line for Portland
In the past year, 2,281 families received grief support at The Dougy Center, and the center responded to over 23,000 phone calls requesting information and support for crises, referrals and intake requests. The Dougy Center’s Grief Out Loud podcast episodes have been downloaded over 300,000 times. Now, more than ever, The Dougy Center is dedicated to being a reliable resource for children and families who are grieving, and for communities needing support, response and training during the COVID-19 global pandemic.
We will give the first 20 Give!Guide donors of $50 or more a Dougy Center tote bag and a set of notecards decorated with art created by children who participate in The Dougy Center’s grief support program.
