At Halifax Health – Hospice, we believe that children deserve the opportunity to grieve after losing a loved one and have designed programs specifically to meet their needs.
Retreats, outreach activities and grief centers are just a few of the ways we make our services available to young children and teens during this difficult time.
BeginAgain Childrens Grief Center
At Halifax Health – Hospice, we believe that children deserve the opportunity to grieve after the death of a loved one and have designed programs specifically to meet their needs.
The BeginAgain Children’s Grief Centers provide a safe and child-friendly environment. Modeled after the Dougy Center in Portland Oregon, this hospice-related program encourages grief expression in ways best suited for children and teenagers. Some of the activities include support groups, art, drama, music and physical activity.
Children from age 4 -18 who have experienced the death of someone close to them are eligible to participate. Consent of a parent or legal guardian is required. An orientation will be scheduled prior to group registration to complete paperwork, learn more about our program and tour our facility.
Our counselors are Master’s level therapists and specially trained in children’s grief and there is a team of highly trained and dedicated volunteers.
We have specialized Children’s Centers in Daytona Beach/ Flagler Beach (call 386.425-3100) Deland (call 386.425.9889 or 386.425.9885) and Orlando (call 407.825.9848). Please download the brochure for additional information.
The next Camp BeginAgain will be held in November 2020 at the following location:

At Halifax Health – Hospice, we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to grieve. Children often are thought to be too young to understand and cope with their grief. However, if given the proper support and understanding, children have a natural capacity to grieve and heal.
