Session planned for grieving children

BANGOR, Maine — Pathfinders: Support for Grieving Children will hold its fall session 6-7:30 p.m. Mondays, Oct. 3-Dec. 12, at Redeemer Lutheran Church, 540 Essex St.

Pathfinders provides grief support for children and their families or caregivers who are experiencing the death of a loved one. Adults who attend with children meet in their own groups. Teens and young adults can attend on their own as long as they have the consent of their caregiver.

Marking its 17th year, Pathfinders was founded by Maria Brountas and the late Barbara Eames. The program provides special bereavement support geared specifically for children ages 4 and up.

To help defray costs, there is a $50 fee per family, with a limited number of scholarships available.

Pathfinders is a program of Bangor Area Visiting Nurses and part of Eastern Maine Healthcare System. For information, call 973-8269 or visit http://www.pathfindersmaine.org.
