Programs in New Hampshire

Friends of Aine Center for Greiving Children and Families*
146 Lowell St.
Manchester, New Hampshire 03104
(603) 669-1120
Friends of Aine offers peer to peer support groups for children and teens, ages 4 to 18, who have experienced the death of an important person in their lives. Through peer support, children, teens and their accompanying adult(s) find comfort and safety in the knowledge that they are not alone and can tell their story. Trained group facilitators use activities and discussion to pass on coping skills that will be useful to them in their grief journey and throughout the rest of their lives. Grief is hard. No child should have to do it alone.
