The Classroom Companions Program brings an intentional 6-week peer support program to our area schools. Our in-school curriculum addresses grief-related topics through thoughtful discussion and developmentally appropriate activities in areas such as emotion identification, building coping skills, sharing our special stories and memories, and changes and fears. School groups are offered for students K-12 and are facilitated by an Erin’s House staff member and volunteer or school staff person.

Along with activities and discussions with children and teens in our Classroom Companion programs, Erin’s House provides Grief Backpacks as a resource for schools to utilize. These new backpacks are filled with brand new books on grieving created to provide youth with additional support after a death, all at no cost to the schools or students. School counselors receive one backpack by request and are encouraged to lend its resources to students as needed.
