Touchstone Program Helps Grieving Children and Their Families

The Children’s Home Society of Idaho, a Boise-based nonprofit organization that provides emotional and behavioral health care to at-risk children in the community, has resumed its Touchstone Program for grief-stricken youth-following a traditional summer break for the program.

The Touchstone Program offers group therapy in a supportive environment for children and adolescents who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or close family member.

The Touchstone Program meets twice a month at Children’s Home Society of Idaho, 740 Warm Springs Avenue. Each session begins with a meal, after which participants are separated into peer groups for discussion and activities focused on the dynamics of grief and coping skills. In conjunction with the youth peer group sessions, Touchstone also provides parent/guardian peer group sessions which focus on coping skills and how to support children throughout the grieving process.

The mission of the Children’s Home Society is to continue a century-old legacy of improving the lives of children in the community. Today the organization accomplishes this mission by operating the Warm Springs Counseling Center which provides superior emotional and behavioral health services to at-risk children and the families that care for them.
