East Bay Agency for Children's Circle of Care is a unique program that supports children and their families coping with a life threatening illness or the death of a loved one. This program helps children heal and learn to cope with this traumatic experience through specialized Support Groups, Individual and Family Counseling, Crisis Support, Community Trainings and Outreach.
East Bay Agency for Children offers one of the nation’s few programs providing counseling and support services to children and their families where a parent, caregiver or family member has died or is living with a life threatening illness.
Called “Circle of Care”, the program offers simultaneous peer support groups for all family members, with parents/caregivers attending one group and toddlers, elementary school children and teenagers attending their own separate groups. Themed art and play activities are integrated into groups for younger children, while the adults often share practical strategies as well as their feelings. Groups are led by EBAC-trained volunteer facilitators, who contribute more than 3,000 hours of compassionate service every year.
