Footprints Children’s Grief Center

Footprints Children’s Grief Center helps children and families with anticipatory grief while a loved one is seriously ill. We also offer individual counseling to grieving children following the death of a loved one.

We believe all children have the capacity to heal from within. Having a supportive person who knows how to listen deeply and speak a language children understand can help greatly. Trained children’s grief counselors facilitate healing through art, movement and play—the ways children naturally express and process feelings.  Parents and caregivers receive coaching around how to best support their child through the grief process.

Individual grief counseling takes place in our kid-friendly Footprints studio at 501 S. Cherry Street in Denver. Anticipatory grief counseling is offered at Footprints or in the child’s home—wherever a family feels most comfortable. Please note that anticipatory grief counseling in the home is available only for patients and families who have been or are being cared for by The Denver Hospice.
