Fernside's School Programs

Since 1986, Fernside: A Center for Grieving Children has helped over 40,000 children and their families deal with the loss of a loved one…all free of charge. 

With the support of a 2017-18 Dater Foundation grant, Fernside proudly served a record 425 students through its School Group Program, which provides on-site grief support to schools throughout Greater Cincinnati.  Childhood bereavement is an issue that is far more prevalent than many realize. In fact, one in 12 Ohio children will experience the death of a parent or sibling before the age of 18, and the vast majority will experience the death of someone they know before they graduate high school. This means that in almost every classroom, there’s likely to be at least one grieving student.

The Dater Foundation’s support helped Fernside provide comfort and camaraderie to 425 students during a pivotal moment in their development, and helped them build coping skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
