Who we are…
Over 100 volunteers from all walks of life serve as bereavement facilitators – guiding the peer-led support groups through activities and games that give participants to the opportunity to share their stories.
These volunteers are recruited, screened and trained by seasoned program staff. Program Director Kelly Geib-Eckenroth came to the Grief Center with nearly 20 years of experience in child development. Our development and outreach team complement their skills and provide the resources to keep the center operating.
Executive Director Jade Richardson Bock began serving the Grief Center in 2003 as a volunteer bereavement facilitator, and has been employed by the program since 2005. In 2014, she co-authoredParenting Through Grief: The Attunetion Approach with Dr. Craig Pierce to assist families with children in the first few weeks and months after a the death of a loved one.
