Chase loved spending time with his grandma. One day while visiting, Chase witnessed his grandma’s sudden death from a heart attack. Only 10 years old, Chase was devastated. Chase’s school referred him to the Wendt Center where he worked with a therapist to explore his trauma and learned how to allow his feelings. Chase’s therapist then recommended the Wendt Center’s grief camp so Chase could meet other grieving children and share memories of his grandma and her death in a safe, supportive space.
Chase’s mom worried about sending him to camp alone and about providing everything he would need. So, Chase’s therapist encouraged her to send along his siblings. DONORS LIKE YOU provided everything Chase and his siblings needed to attend camp for free. Grief camp gave Chase’s family much more than a fun weekend. It gave them skills to talk about and remember their grandma in healthy ways.
Camp is just one example of the incredible healing programs you make possible at the Wendt Center. Help us create healing pathways for people like Chase by giving generously today.
Wendt Center for Loss and Healing is the Greater Washington region’s only not-for-profit resource for restoring hope and healthy functioning to adults, teens, and children who are coping with grief, loss, and trauma. Wendt Center offers individual and group counseling through HIPPA-compliant virtual platforms and, as the health climate allows, in-person therapeutic support at our northwest and southeast offices, in schools, and in community settings.
Integral to the Wendt Center, the Wendt Center Training Institute provides customized, trauma-informed workshops and certifications that equip mental health and allied professionals with skills to address grief, loss, and trauma in the communities in which they work and live. Wendt Center is frequently called upon to deliver local and national crisis response services.
Your generous support helps create healing pathways for those impacted by grief, loss, and trauma. Together, we can transform lives and strengthen communities within the Greater Washington area and across the country.
