DMTF hosts grief program for children, families

SHIPPENSBURG–Families in Shippensburg who have children struggling with grief can now access support at Grace B. Luhr’s Elementary School on the campus of Shippensburg University.

The Drew Michael Taylor Foundation has started a Fall 2023 Drew’s Hope Program, a grief and loss support program for children, teens and their families.

The free 7-session program is held every fall and spring and each session includes dinner followed by separate support groups with activities/play centers, therapy dog visits, grief education and discussion for adults, teens and children.

The fall program will run on seven Monday evenings from 6-8 p.m. beginning Sept. 25 through Nov. 13, 2023. Pre-registration is required to participate. Please contact Marcie Taylor of the Drew Michael Taylor Foundation at 717-532-8922 or [email protected].

In addition to Drew’s Hope, The Drew Michael Taylor Foundation also runs monthly adult support groups on Thursdays from 7-8:30 p.m. at The Drew’s Hope Grief Center at 946 Ashton Drive in Shippensburg. The adult groups are free to attend and while pre-registration is not required, DMTF does appreciate an RSVP for the nights that you plan on participating.

The DMTF is a local charitable organization created by Randy and Marcie Taylor of Shippensburg, to honor the memory of their 3-year-old son Drew. The foundation’s mission is to provide grief education and support programs to children, teens and adults who are grieving the death of a loved one.
