Review for Kates Club Inc, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Kate’s Club is a non-profit organization that empowers children and teens facing life after the death of a parent or sibling. By creating friendships with kids and young adults that share the experience, Kate’s Club guides children through their grief journey in a comfortable, safe, and uplifting setting... They do JUST that! I have custody of my now 7 year old nephew (Daniel) since the death of his mother (my sister) and his baby brother in 2008, his father having died in 2007. With his oldest brother dying January 2012, my little one has been forced to repeat the death cycle over and over again. Daniel loves going to Kate's Club for the camaraderie he feels with the other children who have all lost a parent or a sibling. He has opportunities to have fun and to just be a kid around other kids who don't look at him funny when he says he wishes he knew what it was like to have a dad play with him. He is around other kids who struggle with some of the same thoughts they are afraid to express. Being at Kate's Club, Daniel has become less introverted, less tense, less angry, less detached... He has become brighter, happier, more open to trying new things, less concerned about how his classmates will view him when no dad comes for donuts with dad and when he doesn't write a card for mother's day. We love the counselors and buddies at Kate's club and are ever grateful for the reprieve they provide in our lives. On event Saturdays, I finally have an opportunity to be selfish and get 6 hours to myself to run errands, to enjoy Piedmont Park, or to stroll in stores at Atlantic Station that otherwise would be too boring for a child. I don't have help from other family members (mine or his father's side) or a spouse. Raising this child is me, his school teachers, and Kate's Club. Thank you Kate's Club... for everything.
