Full Circle Grief Center

Richmond's Comprehensive Grief Resource Center

aka Full Circle   |   RICHMOND, VA   |  www.fullcirclegc.org

Mission

Full Circle's mission is to provide comprehensive, professional bereavement support to children, families, and the community. Full Circle was started in September 2008 as a comprehensive grief resource center in the Richmond area to help meet the needs of those grieving in our community. Our organization is dedicated to those who need long-term, professional support as they work through their grief. We use creative expression to enable children to share the many emotions that come along with experiencing the death of someone significant. Full Circle offers 8-week support groups for families, overdose loss, suicide loss, and perinatal loss - free of charge. We also provide individual counseling services for children and adults - insurance and self-pay accepted.

Hand On Healing Counseling Groups

Hands On Healing are offered to children (ages 3-18) and their families who are grieving any type of death.

Population(s) Served
Families
Children and youth

Full Circle is the only organization in Richmond that provides bereavement support to inner-city schools in their communities. By going into their communities, we help families who would not otherwise have access to grief support.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Full Circle's "Conversations about Grief" series enables our professionals to educate community members, families, or other professionals about children and the grieving process, how to talk with children about grief and loss, learn ways to support them through a death, and dispel myths about children and grief. Philosophy: Many individuals are uncomfortable talking about grief, feel unsure about what to say to those who are grieving, and don't know the appropriate ways to support a child through grief. Sometimes, our society avoids the topic of grief because it makes people feel uncomfortable. At Full Circle, we feel strongly about the importance of educating the public on grief and its effects on children. Unfortunately, grief is a natural and normal part of life and adults need the knowledge to support children through these difficult times.
