The Dougy Center provides support in a safe place where children, teens, young adults and their families grieving a death can share their experiences. Our peer support model is free of charge. We offer training locally, nationally and internationally to individuals and organizations seeking to assist children in grief.
Bottom Line for Portland
More than 2,000 people received services at The Dougy Center this year, and the center responded to 20,275 phone calls requesting information, support for crisis, referrals and intake requests. The Dougy Center’s Grief Out Loud podcasts have been downloaded over 100,000 times, and this past year 1,265 peer support groups were held serving children, teens, families and young adults.
“Because of the Dougy Center, my daughters can talk about their mother. They are able to feel normal with peers who have had similar experiences. We have gained tools that have helped us to start to heal from their mother’s suicide.”
—Peter, father and Dougy Center participant
