About SafeHaven

Emotional Support

VNA SafeHaven is a FREE, comprehensive six-week grief support program offering emotional support to families with children and teens who have experienced loss through the death of someone significant in their lives.

VNA SafeHaven is open to any child age 5 through 18 and their family who have experienced the death of a loved one. Adult professionals and highly-trained, caring volunteers lead small groups of children of similar age in age-appropriate activities and discussions on grief and coping skills.

Adult family members meet as a separate group during this six-week program. As their children learn more effective ways to express their feelings and to acknowledge the value of each family member, parents and guardians can share and reinforce those coping skills in the home setting.

Our Goals

  • To provide a safe and comfortable environment where children and families can learn to understand and express their grief.

  • To support and encourage open communication and sharing within the family unit.

  • To help children accept and adjust to changes taking place within the family structure.

  • To help children focus on their own individual strengths and build a stronger sense of self.


VNA SafeHaven meets six times in the fall and six times in the spring, on Thursday evenings in Denton, Texas. Our current session runs from September 13th through October 18th, 2018.
