BreakWay: A Grief Journey Program and Divorce Journey Program are designed for children who are experiencing a divorce in their family or for children who have experienced the death of a loved one.
In a recent study, 85% of parents who lost a spouse said they wish there were more resources for their grieving children. Our BreakWay grief program provides this support.
We also learned that 50% of all children born to married parents will experience the divorce of their parents before the age of 18. Many children who experience a divorce in their family will experience more psychological problems than children whose parents have died.
We want to make sure that communities have the resources to provide support groups for children ages 5-18 (littles, middles, and teens) and their parents or guardian. These programs equip counseling centers and churches with the tools that they need to create a support group for families within their community that are experiencing grief through the death of a loved one or are experiencing a divorce in their family.
In these support groups, each participant will be guided through age-appropriate activities that will help lay a foundation for topics that surface when losing a loved one or experiencing divorce.
Our goal at BreakWay is to allow children to interact with one another in a safe and controlled environment allowing each individual to express their grief and embrace the healing process.
