School Support Services

Valerie's House is committed to helping the surrounding schools assist their grieving children. No child should have to grieve alone, and with our partnership they won't have to.

If your school has been touched by death, whether it be the loss of a student or faculty member, and you are needing extra support and knowledge on how to help your grieving students, then Valerie's House would love to help.

  • Grief Presentations: We offer a 30-45 minute presentation to provide education and support to the faculty and staff of elementary, middle & high schools.
    It is most helpful when the school provides a projector and screen for the presentation.

Arrange a Presentation at Your School

We are happy to come to share our grief support to help your faculty and staff. 

  • Refer a child to Valerie's House: The school may refer a family to Valerie's House after they have experienced the death of a loved one. Child/Teen will join a peer support group while the caregiver is also in a support group with other caregivers. Groups include peer-to-peer support, creative projects, books, music, and play.

Student Referral Form

If you know a student who is grieving, please fill out this referral form, and one of our caring team members will reach out directly to the family.


There is no fee for our services. Please see our Program page to refer a family and one of our staff members will get back to you within 24 hours.
