Reviews for Dougy Center, Inc.
I've been volunteering here since I was little. It helps that I know people who work here so I can continue to volunteer. The Dougy Center provides a safe place for children, teens, young adults and their families who are grieving a death to share their experiences. They do this through peer support groups, education, and training. Today, The Dougy Center serves 400 children and their 250 adult family members each month. This place is just amazing. In my volunteer work I've done everything from mailing out calendars for groups, to doing artwork and setting up for their yearly benefit. I just love this place so much, and I love spreading the word about this place. More people should know about this place, because so many of us have benefited from this place, and many more people can benefit from this place. http://www.dougy.org/
